The Oxford Area High School chapter of Interact and the EarlyAct chapters at Penn’s Grove and Hopewell Elementary schools recently came together to hold ceremonies to induct new members and install officers.
Interact and EarlyAct are sponsored by local Rotary Clubs through Rotary International and welcome students at all grade levels who are interested in serving their school and community. Each school year members of Interact and EarlyAct plan and organize three projects to benefit their school, local and global communities.
EarlyAct and Interact members are selected on the basis of essays describing their interest in joining the club and commitment to community service. Officers are elected after delivering speeches on their leadership skills and ideas for the club to the full membership.
Oxford’s Interact and EarlyAct chapters are sponsored locally by the Oxford Rotary Club. With the college-level Rotaract club at Lincoln University, Oxford Rotary sponsors chapters of all three youth community service clubs of Rotary International.
