Jennifer Detwiler
SASD Interact Club

Interact presentation, coordinated by Jennifer Detwiler (SAHS Math Teacher and Interact Club Advisor) who will be bringing two high school seniors from Souderton Area High School to speak to us.  We welcome Eric Mensah, President of the Interact Club, and Kate Martin, a member of the club.  They will speak about Interact and their experiences over the last year during COVID including what activities they were able to do or not do with regards to any service projects.

Below is information about each of our speakers:

Eric Mensah

Hello, my name is Eric Mensah. I am currently a Senior at Souderton Area High School and I am also this year's President of the Interact Club. This is my third year in the club as a member and my first year as an officer. I joined the club in my sophomore year with two of my friends and was committed to being an active member. Thanks to Rotary I have been able to connect with all different types of people in all different walks of life. Through the club I have participated in an innumerable amount of events and activities that I would not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in. I am more than glad to be a member of Interact and help lead, but also keep the club alive even through the pandemic. In the future I plan to go to college and study Biochemistry in hopes to attend medical school and land a job in the medical field. 

Kate Martin

Hello, my name is Kate Martin. I am currently a senior at Souderton Area High School and am a current member of the Interact Club. I joined the club last year just a few months before the pandemic began. I enjoy spending time helping out in the community, and discussing our intentions for the club's future at our monthly meetings. I have gotten close with the members by volunteering together and I wouldn't trade those friendships for the world! The Interact Club is an amazing way to bring the Rotary into our schools, and teach students what the Rotary is and how they help in communities all around the world! In my free time, I enjoy spending any time I can outdoors with my family and friends. My future plans are to attend college for dental hygiene. I can't wait to see what the future holds for the Interact Club and all of its members!
