Excellent morning meeting (by Zoom) for Grand Island Rotary this week (June 9). The meeting featured Sophia Terlecki, President of the G I High School Interact Club during this 2020 /21 school year. Ms. Terlecki acknowledged the challenge of ‘Covid required’ restrictions – no in-person meetings, a mixed year in High School – some school time all virtual, some mixed sessions. Through it all, she and approximately 30 other students did accomplish virtual (Zoom) meetings, and more importantly, accomplished several unique projects: ‘pen-pal’ writing notes to younger students encouraging ‘buddying’ to avoid depressive loneliness, collecting travel size toiletries (since no-one was traveling!) for homeless and families in crisis. Those efforts plus the student help for Rotary’s ‘Adopt-a-Hiway’ cleanup along Beaver Island Parkway gave them a rewarding year. Ms. Terlecki and the whole Interact Club certainly exhibit the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.
