Broad Run High School Interact Club hosts second Welcome Social
More than 120 students, parents, faculty and community leaders attended the Broad Run High School Interact Club’s second welcome social Nov. 30.
The Rotary Club of Ashburn created Broad Run’s Interact Club, using grants from Capital One Bank and Modern Mechanical. Thirty-two students came together in February 2011 to form the club, and it since has grown to 78 students. Tom Newman serves as faculty advisor.
Rotary International created Interact a service club for students ages 12 to 18. Although local Rotary Clubs sponsor Interact Clubs in their areas, the student groups are self-governing and self-supporting. Nationwide, more than 200,000 young people are involved with Interact.
Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Edgar Hatrick, a Rotarian, served as guest of honor for the most recent social night and reminded those in attendance of Rotary’s motto: Service above Self.
