Kiwanis Club of Utica announced its newest member, Mike Pagliaro.


Mike was instrumental in helping Kiwanis Club charter a K-Kids program at Columbus Elementary School this past spring. K-Kids is a service organization of Kiwanis International for elementary school children and sponsored by a local Kiwanis Club. Mike and his colleagues helped Kiwanis Club hold a kick-off event in May with 25 members ready to go! The program provides opportunities for kids to work together in service and community, develop leadership potential, and foster development of a strong, moral character.


Mike has been an employee of the Utica City School District for the past nine years as a Kindergarten teacher. Mike has a Master of Special Education from Grand Canyon University and is currently pursuing a second master’s in educational administration at Grand Canyon University with an anticipated graduation date of July 2025.
