Central Baptist College Rotaract Club Relaunches
May 3, 2021
The 2020-2021 academic year has been a productive one as the Central Baptist College Rotaract Club relaunched under the direction of Advisor Dr. Kateryna Pitchford. Through Rotaract clubs, young people ages 18 and older develop leadership and professional skills, exchange ideas with community leaders, and have fun through service. Membership in the CBC Rotaract Club is limited to currently enrolled students at Central Baptist College. This year the CBC Rotaract Club held four meetings and participated in two community service projects. The first project, Operation Christmas Child, was held in November 2020. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse and is sponsored locally by Conway Fellowship Bible Church.
The second service project was with Life Choices. Life Choices is a local pregnancy resource center, and the Rotaract Club volunteered for their annual Spring Soire fundraising event on April 19-20. It has been a pleasure to serve as the CBC Rotaract Advisor, said Dr. Pitchford. We have 15 great members who were very active in reestablishing the club this year and serving others in our community. They came up with community service projects and had a strong will and dedication in implementing them. I am looking forward to the next year with this group of outstanding students and, of course, new students!
