Argyle and Liberty Christian Introduce New Student Club

Now that the school year has started, many students may be wondering if there are any new clubs or organizations to get involved in that can make a real difference in their school and community. The quick answer is yes, and it’s Interact.

Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12 to 18 who are interested in developing leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self. There are more than 20,000 of these clubs throughout the world, and it just so happens that the newest ones are right here at Argyle High School and Liberty Christian School.

Are you interested? Here’s how it works: Interact mirrors the mission of Rotary International, which has been around for more than a century and has local chapters for adults throughout Denton County, and gives students the power to run their own clubs. Students organize at least two projects every year, one where they connect with local leaders to help their school and community and one that promotes international understanding.

The Cross Timbers Rotary Club is the sponsor for Argyle and Liberty’s Interact clubs and will mentor students as they carry out their projects each year. Liberty’s club was certified in September while Argyle was certified in May.

“The youth of today is our future,” said Michael Walker, the Director-At-Large for Youth Services with the Cross Timbers Rotary Club. “The goal is that the students will run and lead their clubs. We have resources at our club to mentor them along the way. The Argyle and Liberty clubs are still new, and we’d love to see them grow.”

He added, “Our selfish motive is that when these kids get older, they will come to Rotary and do the same thing as adults.”
