Posted by Community Relations on 1/7/2016

Central’s Interact Club was honored with a Presidential Citation Award from Rotary International and Phoenix’s Rotary 100 club. Interact Clubs must participate in at least one activity that promotes international understanding, and participate in an event to build awareness of, or raise funds for Rotary’s polio eradication campaign. Clubs are also asked to support a fundraiser that supports a Rotary focus area.   Central students distributed books for Halloween to promote literacy, collected donations for the polio campaign, volunteered as bell-ringers for the Salvation Army and provided soccer balls to needy kids to promote health and fitness. Club members also hosted visiting students from the school’s sister schools. Taylor Croswell is the Interact President and John Gerace is the club advisor.

Gerace, who is also the Global Studies magnet manager, and his students are also welcoming visiting students from Costa Rica, beginning January 12.
