HANCEVILLE, ALA. – Wallace State Community College’s Rotaract Club members know what it means to “give back.”
Wallace State’s Rotaract Club, the student level of the professional Rotary Club, raised $2,500 during its Valentine Caramel Apple event this semester. The Cullman Rotary Club matched Wallace State’s Rotaract funds, which allowed the two organizations to donate $5,000 to Wallace State’s Future Foundation. The proceeds will be used to distribute “Tame the Hunger” gift cards to Wallace State students in need of food for themselves or their family. Meeting the basic needs of nourishment allows students to concentrate on their academic success.
Wallace State Rotaract Club sponsor Terri McGriff-Waldrop is proud of the club’s participation with this drive.
“They have real passion and empathy for their fellow Wallace State students. The club pulled together and within a 24-hour period raised those funds to help support others,” McGriff-Waldrop said. “Our faculty prides itself on our students’ academic success. However, the pride you feel when you see young people giving back to others, not expecting anything in return, is what makes your heart swell. We want our graduates to be good community stewards, and this group has surpassed any expectation I ever had.”
Membership in Wallace State’s Rotaract Club is open to all majors at Wallace State, and the club, already one of the college’s largest, hopes to see even more participants going forward.
