The Eureka Springs High School Interact club presented two checks on Monday, May 2.  The first was a $2,000 check to Samaritan’s Feet.  Cathy Handley from the Eureka Springs Rotary Club noted that before school starts in August there will be a shoe giveaway to students in need of a new pair of shoes. In addition, with the help of other donors,  a Samaritan’s Locker will be established for students who may need new shoes anytime during the school year. 

The second  $500 check was presented to ESHS teacher Mr.  Runnersmith and the Eureka Springs High School Student Council to help fund their memorial scholarships again this year.

  This school year Rotary Interact will have distributed over $4,900 to charitable causes.  The Eureka Springs Rotary Interact Club is sponsored by both the Eureka Springs and Holiday Island Rotary Clubs.  EAST teacher Adam Louderback has been the club’s high school adviser for eight years. During that time more than $26,000 has been raised and distributed to help those in need.  The Rotary Interact Program teaches high school students the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self.” Students learn the importance of volunteering to help others while having fun and working as a team.
