Interact Clubs
Interact is the Rotary sponsored service club for high school students. Jamie Lam, Interact District Governor of District 5170 spoke to our District Conference in 2014.She had this to say about Interact:
  “In your introduction of me (Jamie Lam’s), you  said that Interact is the future of Rotary.  That’s wrong – We are not the future, we are the NOW!  We have the ability to change the world, and we intend to do it!  You sponsor Interact clubs, but we are not just mini-Rotary clubs.  Interact clubs should offer promises that motivate teenagers, not adults – not Rotarians  or teachers or parents – just students. 
Interact members can both *be changed and *change the world  – through programs that teach time management, ethics, leadership skills, public speaking, professionalism, how to deal with stress, how to write a resume, how to dress professionally, how to motivate people; through opportunities to be leaders in various positions in the club; through service opportunities locally and beyond .  We can help connect students with other Rotary programs too  - like Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), Rotary Exchange, Rotary scholarship opportunities, networking with Rotary/community members.  All of these programs help fulfill the promises of Interact and Rotary.”

Our club currently sponsors groups at Central and East High Schools.  This year during “Club Rush” the Central High Group had 50 students interested in  participating. 
Spencer Miller, this year’s Central High School Interact President, said, “I chose to join Interact because I wanted to be more involved and become a more well-rounded person. I think it's important for people to understand that Interact has so much more to offer than just volunteer hours and a nice addition to your application.  This year I chose to step up as a leader because I thought it would be the best way for me to positively contribute to the club while building my leadership skills at the same time.”
Robin Sims is our Club liaison for Central’s Interact.  She does so because of the “personal fulfillment that she gets from watching our Interact members make a difference in our community, from seeing them develop and mature each year, and from helping them gain access or even knowledge about various opportunities available – that fulfillment is immeasurable! “
