Rotary Club of West Nassau sponsors youth service club at H.O. Nash
The Rotary Club of West Nassau’s newest sponsored youth service club – the Interact Club of H.O. Nash – saw its members chartered and also pinned during a recent ceremony.
The goals of Interact are to develop leadership skills and personal integrity; demonstrate helpfulness and respect for others; understand the value of individual responsibility and hard work; and advance international understanding and goodwill.
In partnership with the Rotary Club of West Nassau, the Interact Club of H.O. Nash donated four garbage bins to the school, as the first part of the club’s anti-litter initiative.
Interact clubs are self-supporting and self-governing but receive guidance from a sponsoring Rotary club. This sponsorship is a result of Rotary’s belief that young people should take an active interest in community life and have the opportunity to develop leadership skills. Interact provides a vehicle through which new generations can find that involvement.
Comprising the Interact Club of H.O. Nash are Jennifer Fowler, president and community service director; Ashtin Stirrup, vice president; Kyiesha Thompson, secretary; Jerlean Thompson, treasurer; Ashton Flowers, fundraising director; Gerald Bethel, sergeant-at-arms; Rasheed Dixon, chaplain; as well as Shantya Pratt, Rennee Watson, Denaj Taylor, Lisa Smith, Jashona Wright, Lashawna Ferguson and Tamia Taylor.
Rotary Club of West Nassau members present for the ceremony were Pedro Delaney, president; Delric Beneby, New Generations director; and Rotarians Kendrick Christie, William Wong, Harry Kemp and Barron Ferguson.
