Feb. 3, 2003 Twenty-one students at Ivanna Eudora Kean High School, who have formed a Rotary Interact Club, will participate in a pinning ceremony Wednesday in the Kean library at 10:35 a.m. during the students' scheduled activity period.
As an Interact Club, the members will perform at least two projects a year, with one serving the community and the other furthering international understanding. Rotary East member Toni Johnson is assisting the students to become active in meaningful community service projects.
The students, known as Interactors, will also have access to many resources of Rotary International and the Rotary Foundation. Rotary International provides administrative support that helps Interact Clubs thrive.
Through their service activities, Interactors learn to develop leadership skills and personal integrity, to demonstrate helpfulness and respect for others, and to understand the value of individual responsibility and hard work while advancing international understanding and goodwill.
More than 150,000 young people in about 100 countries belong to Rotary Interact Clubs.
