The newly chartered Rotaract Club of University of South Carolina at Beaufort students and sponsors took an alternative spring break last month, to work in New Orleans. They helped build Habitat for Humanity houses, plus various other projects needed. Paige Frankovich, a freshman, Paige Castle, USCB sponsor, Bethany Brown, Co-VP and a freshman, and Daniel Northcutt, club treasurer and a junior, share their experiences with the Bluffton Rotary Club. The Bluffton Rotary Club helped fund the new club’s alternative spring break. The Rotaract Club of University of South Carolina at Beaufort is co-sponsored by the Bluffton and the Hilton Head Island Rotary Clubs.
