The Interact Club will be taking a life-changing trip to Mexico

The Rotary Interact Club is making a life-changing trip this year out of the US. Angie Bustillos, the current president of this club, plans on taking her team of young individuals on a selfless journey to help those in need in Mexico.

The Interact Club will be taking their five-day trip during Spring Break, from March 25 to March 29.

This year is Angie’s first year as president of the Interact Club, which is also led by a Mead High School teacher, Katarina Schmitt, and a community member, Bruce Hendrich.

The purpose of the Interact Club is to give an opportunity for young people to form a group and work together in service and understanding of their community and the world. Their purpose as a whole is to make a difference in the lives of people in need.

As members of the Interact Club, groups are expected to do one international project and one local project a year. The Rotary Interact Club is a year-round club provided all over the world.

This year, Mead High School’s Interact Club’s international project is to go to underprivileged schools in Chihuahua, Mexico.

Indiana Sjahputera, who has been a participant in Interact activities since the eighth grade and an officer of Rotary Interact since her freshman year, states, “They will be helping teach English and helping kids in these schools.”

Stephanie Gross, an officer of R.I.C since last year, says they do that “as well as providing school supplies and clothing to children in need.”

“The Interact Club’s theme is education [for this 2018-2019 year],” says Sjahputera

“We believe education is the key to success, and if we can give others a chance for success then our world will be more advanced, even with the smallest things.”

The Rotary Interact Club is very eager to perform their duties as Officers and serve their community.
