Interact students give updates

Posted

Students from Cleveland High School and Cleveland Middle School discussed their participation in the Rotary Club of Cleveland's Interact program during a recent luncheon held  at the Museum Center at Five Points.

The students described their participation at Veterans Day and with the Salvation Army.

CMS teacher Derrick Marr said the students loved giving back to the community.

"We also have students who participate in Relay for Life, where they give out food and drinks," Marr said.

The Rotary Club's Interact Clubs enable students ages 12 to 18 to develop leadership skills, while learning how to place service above self.

According to the Rotary Club International's website, students learn the following:

• Take action to make a difference in your school and community.

• Discover new cultures and promote international understanding.

• Become a leader in your school and community.

• Have fun and make new friends from around the world.

"Interact clubs organize at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Rotary Club sponsors mentor and guide Interactors as they carry out projects and develop leadership skills," according to the website.

Participants in the Interact program are CHS students Jaynae Wright, Harper Fuller and Kira Stander,  as well as CMS students Megan Godfrey, Izzy Pitre, Noah Jones, Lena Rodante and Caitlin McMahan.
