Earlier in the school year, around September, a Lake City student named Margaret McGovern started a local Interact club, a subdivision of Rotary International geared towards youth between the ages of 12 and 18. Interact clubs, being a part of Rotary International, are located all over the world and focus on building leadership skills for club members, and humanitarian efforts for local and international communities. The motto of the club is “Service above self.” The club is a great way to give back to your community while learning valuable skills you’ll use your entire life. If you’re interested, the club meets Wednesdays at 4:00pm at the cafe in the Kroc Center.

Maggie started the club after going to France as an exchange student, and seeing the ways Rotary has made a difference in others lives. She said that, upon seeing all the good Rotary was doing for the world, “I realized how important it is to alleviate others’ suffering in any way I can.” When asked what she wanted to do beyond high school, Maggie expressed some uncertainty, stating as a possibility the idea of studying Chemistry and stating “I really just want to travel the world helping people.”
Maggie cares greatly about making the world a better place wherever she’s able, having taken part in many human rights protests in addition to founding our local Interact branch. She is an incredibly optimistic person, believing in the good in everyone and encouraging and motivating others to do what they can for the betterment of all. She does her best to embody all the traits one would hope for and expect in a President for a club with such virtuous ideals.
