Slippery Rock HS Interact
Welcome
In the 2018-2019 school year, the Interact club was very active.  We helped the Slippery Rock volunteer fire department get ready for Halloween, helped the Portersville-Prospect Rotary club make luminaries for Christmas eve, and held the 4th annual volleyball tournament to raise money for the local food pantry.  This year the Slippery Rock, Feed My Sheep food pantry received $1013.00.  There are 3 local food banks and each year a different food bank receives the proceeds of the tournament.  This is possible due to the donations made from the local businesses which helps keep the overhead down to $0. These are just a few of the things this group does every year.  Interact is a very service oriented club in Slippery Rock High School and has between 20-30 members each year.
 
 
Club History
 
Chartered in 2015, the Slippery Rock HS Interact Club is the newest way for local high school students to engage Rotary and the community. The Interact club is sponsored by two of the school district's local Rotary Clubs, Slippery Rock and Portersville-Prospect. The club was founded by Slippery Rock's own Katie McClymonds, class of 2016, after learning about Rotary as a RYLA recipient (Rotary Youth Leadership Award).
 
Since the beginning, it has been involved in service projects with the service organizations in Portersville, Prospect, Slippery Rock, and throughout the Slippery Rock School District Area.  It has supported organizations both locally and internationally.  The largest fundraising event is a volleyball tournament which raises funds for a local food pantry and is held in February/March at the Slippery Rock High School.  There are multiple food pantries in the area and each year a different one is the recipient.
 
Each year the Interact Club has had 25-30 members.  To begin, the club was entirely supported by the two local Rotary Clubs (the Slippery Rock and the Portersville/Prospect Club).  Now, the Slippery Rock High School Interact Club is 100% self supporting financially, but still enjoys contact with the local club, without them it could not have begun.
