Lead, Connect, Serve - INTERACT

Students at Kenowa Hills High School who have been involved in community service projects voted today to affilliate with Interact, Rotary International's Service Club for young people ages 14-18.  The club is sponsored by the Comstock Park Rotary which will offer support and guidance.
Last year, under the guidance of  Mrs. Laura Fair, students involved in community service were part of a group known as TOG (The Opportunity Group).  The group is excited about affilliating with Interact and is looking forward to associating with other clubs.  One of the projects already planned for this fall is mentoring students at Alpine Elementary School, in particular to those students to whom English is not their first language.  Several fundraisers are also planned to brighten the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays for families in need.  The group also hopes to have representation at weekly Rotary meetings.  It has the full support of Kenowa Hills High School Principal Katie Pennington and Superintendent Gerald Hopkins.  So far, 20 dedicated, concerned and committed students joined the group, which is being led by seniors Chris Castro and Yesenia Lopez.
