Rotarian Nicole Fleming met new Interact Club applicants at Eastside High School.

Eastside received more than 70 applications for membership into the Interact Club for the 2012-2013 school year.

This is a record high according to Interact advisor Ginger Boyter. Nicole Fleming is the New Generations Chair for the Rotary Club of Covington, which comprises service related initiatives for youths 12-30 years of age.

The school bell rang and this computer lab quickly filled with more than 30 hopeful Interact club members for the 2012-2013 school year at Eastside High School.

Another 40 applicants were not able to attend this review meeting, but have committed to serving through Rotary's New Generations program for youths ages 12-18.

The ESH Interact club has a robust community service plan for the 2012-2013 school year that includes:

•Service at the Special Olympics

•Sending letters to soldiers for the holidays

•Serving at the Benton House

•Serving at the Literacy Festival of Covington

•Helping with the 60-year-old Covington Rotary Stocking Stuffer Project during the holidays

These young men and women exemplify the future of our society and take pride in service above self.
