Interact Club members, from right, Messiah Moore, Daniel Taylor and Ashton Martin visit the United Nations courtesy of the Rotary Club. On Thursday, three Roxboro Community School (RCS) Interact Club members traveled to the University Club at North Carolina State University, got on a bus, and were on their way to New York City with other Interact students from around North Carolina.

Ashton Martin and Daniel Taylor, both seniors at RCS, are Interact Club co-presidents and Messiah Moore has been a member for three years. Before they spent a full day at the United Nations talking with keynote speakers on gender equality and meeting with other Interact students from across the country, the trio enjoyed a bit of sightseeing.

The Roxboro Rotary Club is funding the trip. The Rotary Club, or Rotary International, is a humanitarian/ global service group that helps people worldwide.

“Rotary’s largest endeavor has been the eradication of polio. Since the 1980s, Rotary has been working to [eradicate polio] and has gotten the global virus count down below 30,” explained Martin.

She added, “ I hope to gain a greater understanding of Rotary and all that they do, as well as foster relationships with local, national and international students.”

The RCS students are staying at the HI Hostel in Manhattan and will leave tonight to return.
