Welcome to the newly formed Interact Club at Benton Central High School.  On Wednesday morning, October 15, 27 students started an Interact Club, with Mr. Dennis Massie as the teacher/sponsor at the school.  Rotary District 6540 Interact Chair Martha Sandoval made the early morning trip to talk to the students present, then they were given the oath as charter members of the club, and then presented with their membership pins.  District Governor Steve Sorenson, a member of the Fowler Rotary Club, was also present for this special occasion, to welcome them into the Rotary family of youth programs.  Also present were Otterbein Club President Sid Payne, who has taken a lead role in this effort, as well Otterbein Rotarians Al Hefner and Wayne Buck. 

The organizational meetings have been taking place the previous two - three weeks.  The three Rotary clubs in Benton County are the sponsoring clubs.  The Boswell, Fowler and Otterbein Rotary clubs are excited to see the students express an interest in participating.  We look forward to working with these fine high school students, and seeing their numbers grow in membership in the future.  Weekly meetings will be held on Wednesdays at 7:45 am, in the arts room, located next to the Auditorium.  Rotarians are encouraged to stop by anytime and show their support of this great group of students.  A charter presentation date will be established in the near future.  Congratulations to the new Benton Central Interact Club!
