On September 28th the Bluffton, Okatie and Hilton Head Island Rotary Clubs hosted the first Beaufort County Interact Symposium for all Interact students within Beaufort County at the Bluffton Boys & Girls Club. Interact Clubs from Hilton Head High School, Hilton Head Prep, Bluffton High School, Beaufort Academy, Beaufort High School and Battery Creek are all represented.

Everyone arrived early on Saturday and participated in fun group activities designed for the students in all the four participating schools to get to know one another. This was followed by a service event; various projects needed by The Boys and Girls Club were tackled enthusiastically by the students. They cleaned and built and scrubbed and designed and created until all the work was done, they then came together for lunch and closing activities.

Over 65 students participated in the Interact Symposium, which included team building, planning, service projects and just plain enjoying a fun-filled day. There were over 20 Rotarians involved.  We hope to have several students from this group go to the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Program in June.

Event organizer and past president for the Hilton Head Rotary Club Mike Jukofsky said, “The conference was a great way for all the Interact kids from across Beaufort County to meet and learn about other clubs…what they are doing, membership concerns, projects, meeting activities…a time for sharing and learning. It was a great success and we hope to have started an annual event for the Interact students in Beaufort County”.
