The Cameron University chapter of Rotaract, a new student organization, was officially chartered during the weekly meeting of the Greater Lawton Rotary Club, which is sponsoring the chapter. Rotaract is the college-level branch of Rotary International. Since the inception of the club earlier this academic year, members of Rotaract have participated in several community service projects and Cameron events, including the Lawton Food Bank, the Red River Career Expo, and Beads for Hope.
Outgoing officers were recognized during the ceremony for their commitment to the organization. They were Lavonne Bynum, Lawton; Santiago Romero and Nabila Damus, both of Misines, Argentina; Emmanual Erilibe, Lagos, Nigeria; and Omenogo Osanakpo, Ndoni, Nigeria.
Officers for 2013-14 are Justice Berko, Kamasi, Ghana, President; Nijjwal Shrestha, Kathmandu, Nepal, Vice President; Stella Osunkwo, Lagos, Nigeria, Secretary; and Kofo Ogunmade, Lagos, Nigeria, Treasurer.
Rotaract is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young men and women. Rotaract clubs are either community or university based. Because clubs are sponsored by a local Rotary club, they are true "partners in service" and key members of the family of Rotary. Rotaract is one of Rotary’s most significant and fastest-growing service programs, with more than 8,400 clubs in approximately 170 countries.
