Thrilled by the Club’s achievement, President, Leo Kabil Varmen said, “the success of our club at the awards ceremony really showed me the standards of our club and how highly it is perceived in this community.”
Although the Club faced “unprecedented challenges” during the Covid-19 pandemic in carrying out projects and activities, they worked together to overcome those challenges. “What I learned from my predecessors, especially my close friend, How Yen, is that no matter the challenge, the only way to overcome it is together and I’m thankful to have my Board of Directors to help ensure the club still manages to fight through these obstacles and eclipse the success of the previous term,” he added.
Congratulations to BAC’s Leo Club!
A huge shoutout to Lions, fellow Leos and BAC for their endless support without whom this achievement would not have been possible!
