The Superior High School Interact Club, a Rotary organization for high school students, has donated $150 to Rotary International’s Polio Plus campaign to eradicate Polio.
Club president Nicole Mattson presented the donation to Rotary President Al Raffetto at a recent meeting. In response to the Interact Club’s gift, Rotary members voted to match the donation. “We are pleased to accept this gift to help eradicate Polio,” noted Raffetto. “Our work continues in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Nigeria, and we look forward to celebrating a Polio free world.”
“Our club is happy to make this donation to Polio Plus,” said Mattson. “We held a carnation sale to raise funds, and many of our teachers made financial donations to this project.” Throughout the school year, the Interact Club has been involved in a number of community service projects including a Children’s Book Drive; the Giving Tree, a drive to collect mittens and warm hats for children in need; and the Salvation Army’s Adopt a Family program during the holiday season. Club members also participate in Rotary service projects.
The Interact Club at Senior High School was established in 2004, and high school chemistry teacher Angela Johnson has served as the club adviser since that time.
“Through the years, Angela has helped students identify service opportunities in our community and has guided their work,” said Raffetto. “We appreciate her commitment and her continuing support of the Interact Club.”
