The Wilmington High School Interact Club was formed in the fall of 1998 by Wilmington Rotarians Angela Keane and Jack Cushing who recognized the benefits of cultivating High School students to appreciate and embrace the spirit of volunteerism and service to others. From it’s inception under the first Interact President Mark DiGiovanni, WHS Class of 1999, the group has steadily grown to now include annual membership exceeding 150 active members. It is the largest club organization at Wilmington High School.
Among the annual events that the Interact Club participates in are the Wilmington Half-Marathon, held every September, Leaf-Raking for senior citizens in the fall, participation in the Rotary Auction and serving breakfast at the Wilmington Recreation Department’s “Breakfast with Santa” held at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Interact members also participate in several opportunities to serve meals to Senior Citizens at the Buzzell Center and Deming Way, as well as participate in the annual Wilmington Senior Trivia contest held every spring.
The Club is proud to have helped with sponsoring and packing supplies for Local Heroes, our local Veteran’s Support Organization, as well as making a recent $1,000 donation to the Haitian Earthquake Relief Fund. There are also many other less publicized but no less important activities that Interact members participate in every year in Wilmington.
Current advisors Jack Cushing and Chris Neville are equally proud of the student members who continually aspire to “live” the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self”. They are a true testament to a long-standing tradition of Wilmington individuals who step forward to help others in need. They also build a solid foundation for future service to others, either as future Rotarians or as quality members of the Community.
The Wilmington High School Interact Club is proud of its affiliation with one of the strongest and oldest Rotary Organizations in the area, the Rotary Club of Wilmington, District 7930.
