The HS High School Interact Club has distinguished itself by becoming the largest and most active Interact club in Rotary District 7710, which encompasses some 45 Rotary clubs. Mr. Rousseau observed that the club achieved its outstanding results because everyone involved, from officers and committee chairs down to the individual members, did what they said what they would do. "You honored your commitments and kept your word," he said. This simple fact was made possible by the individual decisions made by the various members. "Decisions," continued Rousseau, "Become habits. Habits reveal your character, and your character determines your destiny." He commended the club members as being in the "top 10%" as a consequence of being true to their commitments.
Outgoing President Madison Hayes was awarded a "Past President" pin. She then presented a summary of all of the community service projects completed by the club in the past year. Interact clubs are affiliated with and sponsored by local Rotary clubs.
