After a 30-year hiatus of the Interact Club, junior Fred Berry brought it back to life. This club is for students to learn about leadership and help the community.

“I was inspired to bring this club to Astronaut due to attending a Rotary event called Ryla and it taught me about leadership skills,” junior Fred Berry said.

The club meets Friday morning in Mr. Williams’s room. They discuss their goals teaching students leadership qualities, helping our community, continuing to build their foundation, and providing community service hours to any students that are doing Bright Futures.

Fred Berry approached me last semester about wanting to start the Interact Club with a presentation on what the club is and all the good it can provide to the students. I thought it was an awesome idea so I agreed to be the advisor,” Mr. Williams said.

The club never really took off last semester. There were posters all around the school and meetings were trying to start, but no one really showed for the meetings.

“I really wanted this club to be something and I thought there would be amazing opportunities that could come with this club. I decided to help Fred out and encourage people to join,” sophomore Cameron Mizell said.

On February 17 there was over 30 students that had attended the kick-off meeting.

“I was grateful that Cameron was able to help me get this club started. I started the club and he brought the people and I couldn’t be any happier with the turnout,” junior Fred Berry said.

They have made a YouTube video advertising what they have to offer, intending to gain more students.
