BCHS Interact students describe volunteer experiences

Posted

Bradley Central High School students participating in the Rotary Club International’s Interact program spoke about volunteering during a Rotary Club of Cleveland luncheon recently at the Museum Center at Five Points.

The students were accompanied by faculty sponsor Andy McMahan.

Prior to the students speaking about their work with Interact, McMahan said it “had been a great year for the program.”

“This is a superb group,” McMahan said.

The students were Alison Cummings, Anna Stouffer, Lacey Smith, Salvatore Ingenito, Brynna Frakes, Payton Sowder and Kate Gwaltney.

According to Rotary Club International’s website, Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of "service above self," which is a Rotary Club motto. 

The students described participating during the Bradley County SPCA’s Service Day, where they helped walk and bathe dogs.

They also helped raise money to fight polio by selling popcorn to fellow students, raising $350.

During the Christmas season, the students assembled gift boxes that contained hygiene products and school supplies for Operation Christmas Child. The boxes were shipped to underprivileged children around the world.

In addition, they were volunteer bell ringers for the Salvation Army.

They also participated in Summer Packs for Kids, where they helped supply 60 backpacks for Waterville and Prospect Elementary School students.
