Student officers and teacher advisers will celebrate the 51st anniversary of Interact Club at a lunch hosted by the Conyers Rotary Club at Cameron Hall, 1035 Green Street, Conyers, on Nov. 14 at noon.
Past Interact student Liz Flowers will share her experience with the Conyers Club.
Since the beginning of the school year, students have sacrificed many hours of community time working on projects which includes WAPI, an international project with Jamaica which saves lives in many countries. The students will sponsor a food and clothing drive to benefit the Phoenix Pass, Rockdale Emergency Relief, Empty Stocking Fund and more.
The Interact Club help students develop qualities that prepares them for selective colleges and nurtures the importance of giving back to our communities. Interact club is part of Rotary International organization which links local pupils with business professionals with a common interest in community service. Around the world, almost 200,000 students from 109 countries are involved in the program. Rockdale's current Interact Clubs are at Heritage High School, Rockdale County High School and the newly formed charter club at Conyers Middle School.
The Conyers Rotary Club is working with Heritage and Rockdale County High School to sponsor a rising senior nominee from each school to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Camp in Tallulah Falls, Georgia in summer of 2014.
"The students are very excited and will be utilizing technology to collaborate on a worldwide global project with the Interact club of Jamaica, Interact Chair Diane Adoma said. "We are always looking for ways to help the community and this year we will reach beyond our wildest dreams."
