Join the Rotary Club today

Students are invited to join the Rotary Club to gain experience in the business world. Madeline Choate, an ambassador for the school, and Dr. Lance Barry, a GHC Foundation trustee, created the Rotaract Club for young professionals 18 years and older.

“I saw that while all of our students were incredibly intelligent, none of us were as prepared for the business world as we should have been, and GHC did not have a dedicated resource for students to reach out to regarding this issue,” Choate said. “Our USG Chancellor Sonny Perdue and President Mike Hobbs had a vision for the college to integrate business leader-student collaboration.”

Rotary is a global organization that fosters networking among business professionals in the community. Upon joining Rotaract, students become official members, and their membership remains valid beyond graduation.

Go global with Rotaract and connect with other students and professionals online.

Students may question the benefits of joining the Rotary Club.

“Students who join the Rotary club will be learning life and professional development skills from local businesses and community leaders”, Barry said.

The Rotaract club already has more than 20 members. The first club meeting will be held on Feb. 17, at 1 p.m. at the Cartersville campus.

The meeting will be about socializing with other members, different community service opportunities will be announced and a cover letter enhancement demonstration by a local HR specialist.

Students interested in joining should contact the Rotaract Club President, Madeline Choate, via LinkedIn or email at [email protected].

Jalen Hudson, a logistics and supply chain management major and Rotaract club member, explained, ‘The club’s foundation is to help students network, build a resume, and connect with individuals they might not otherwise have access to.'”
