Interact Club: Interact club is all about the community, and our motto is 'Service Above Self'. We are sponsored by Westerville Sunrise Rotary, who help us with a few of the many projects we do each and every year. Last year, we held a canned food drive, raising 1,000 cans! We also participated in Service Day 2011, cleaning up outside an elderly woman's home. Interact Club was very involved at Fouse Elementary, tutoring 4th graders. In the future, we will be holding 'Hats for Heroes', charging $1 for a student to wear a hat to school. The money will then be donated to the Westerville Honor Flight Fund, sending veterans of World War II to Washington to visit Arlington National Cemetary and the World War II Monument. We will also be starting 'Shoe boxes for Troops'. Students at WCHS will fill a shoe box with a few supplies needed overseas, we will send them over , and the student will receive a raffle ticket giving them the chance to win a big prize! Interact is always open to new members, and ideas. Be sure to add us on Facebook at: Westerville Central Interact Club! We will give you updates on new events, and volunteer opportunities.  Advisor: Mike Mahoney
