You get what you give

Kevin Cox
Members of the Interact Club come together with compassion and creativity as they embark on a heartwarming project—creating cozy blankets for those in need. With scissors in hand and a shared commitment to making a difference.

What does your family, school or club do to get in the “Christmas spirit”? Is it decorating a Christmas tree, having a fun Christmas party or maybe bringing in traditional Christmas foods?

Interact club, advised by Kevin Cox, brings together students to learn the importance of giving back to the community.

We have the privilege to discuss with Interact club Vice President, Lina Baer ’24, who shares with us how this club gets involved with the community during this holiday season.

“During this season, Interact club delivers and personally makes blankets for children in need at local hospitals,” Baer said.

For the past three years, South has been making this donation with the 10-year standing non-profit organization, Blanketed With Love.

Interact club makes sure that they are continuously helping their community every year whether that is through book drives, can-well drop-offs or even packing dry lunches with the Kids Coalition Against Hunger organization, which occurs at the War Memorial each year.

Vivian Hall ’24 is a former Interact member. Although due to her busy schedule, she still recalls how special it was to be a part of this club during the Oct. through Dec. months.

“I remember participating in the raking of the leaves for the Grosse Pointe Helm,” Hall said. “It was beautiful seeing everyone together for a great cause”.

Interact is an organization run by a group of students. It is a great place to start making friends and connections inside and outside school. For more information on this club, speak with Kevin Cox on how you can join or meet the group after school every Wednesday.

Regarding hard work, seconnd-year staffer and Multimedia Manager Morgan Payne ’24 is driven by the word. From working multiple jobs to writing for two newspapers, Payne is diligent, dedicated and disciplined. “I work a lot, I have multiple different jobs, including the Tower which is a big job itself,” Payne said. “If I’m not at school, I’m probably at one organization or being a waiter at Antonio’s in Grosse Pointe Park.” Payne said she loves journalism, not just because her friends are in there because she loves to write. “Journalism has a special meaning to me because its a form of communication,” Payne said. “I’m a big talker and I love to inform, so journalism is right up my alley and is something I am going into for my career.” Outside of Tower, Payne said she likes to write short stories and is a part of different organiztions that empower young women. Payne said she can’t wait for a new year of the Tower and hopes other people will join too. “I would suggest anybody who loves to write, get along with people, get involved with your community to join The Tower,” Payne said. “The Tower has been such a great outlet for me to express myself, so join The Tower if you want that.”
