Four students representing the Rotary Interact Clubs at Bainbridge High School and Grace Christian Academy gave a brief program this week on some of their projects.
BHS speakers were Maci Barber, who spoke of the club’s volunteer work at the Field Day and adopting a family at Christmas. Chelsea Jones introduced the subject of RYLA, the Rotary leadership camp she plans to attend this summer.

It is held each year and she called on her brother Ty to come up and answer questions, as he attended RYLA two years ago at Georgia Southwestern University in Americus. He said it is a typical leadership camp with seminars and games directed toward enhancing leadership skills.
Ty said he would like to go back as a counselor. He believes it is a great experience and something Rotary needs to continue to sponsor.
Brent Warr spoke of how his club at GCA was inspired to take part in the State Farm Celebrate my Drive campaign to make teens more aware of making wise choices when operating a motor vehicle. He reported all students at GCA participated by completing an on-line survey each week.
Kelsey Harrell, also a student at Grace, spoke about the club’s participation in Relay for Life, and how they sold donuts to raise funds.
They set up a tent with the theme “Crushing Cancer to save more lives.”
In spite of an early cancellation of the day’s events due to bad weather, their team managed to donate $1000 to Relay for Life.
