Rotaract chartered

The Central Lakes
College Rotaract chapter recently received its charter as a collegiate-level
branch of Rotary International. Anna Backberg of Brainerd was inaugurated as
the first president of the club. Don Cavalier, district
governor of Rotary International, installed the first set of officers and
awarded the charter on behalf of the worldwide, service-above-self
organization. Officers include President Backberg (shown), Vice President Bob Andrys of
Pine River, Secretary Harlan Welsand of Brainerd, Treasurer Abdul Qadir of
Pakistan, and Student Senate Liaison Shay Samuelson of Hibbing. Megan Heppner, a
TRiO/Student Support Services adviser, is the club adviser. Rebecca Best, dean
of workforce, economic and regional development, is the Rotary liaison. Club members this fall will be partnering with Brainerd Rotary to carry out
the Reverse Raffle and volunteering at the Haunted Trail at Northland
Arboretum. In the spring the club plans a large fundraiser and will be a
partner with Brainerd High School Interact for other activities.
