As the end of the school year approaches, the Interact Club prepares to pass the baton off to a new lineup of officers. On Wednesday, May 18, Interact hosted its last meeting in which the new officers and members were able to collaborate one last time before the end of the school year.

“Next year I am excited to take the position as an officer because I really enjoy helping people. I know it sounds weird, but making a difference in someone’s life is really something that matters,” Caitlyn Mavity (10) said.

In the meeting, members also discussed what they would like to see happen next year and which projects they would like to see happen.

“Next year I hope to see more members for sure. Right now we are a smaller club and we want to branch out more. Next year I would also like to have more activities and still continue [projects] we did this year like the Food Drive, Operation Care and Pennies for Polio,” Mavity said.
