Boyd Christian High School Interact Application
Grade: ______ GPA: _____ (estimated)
BCS Interact is a service organization in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs of McMinnville. Our motto is “Service Above Self”. We take pride in the fact that we have “the best of the best students” who are willing to live by the “4-Way Test”. We devote our time to service projects by helping in five different areas: school, community, international, club fellowship, and district fellowship. Our club is exclusive because we want those who truly have the proper BCS attitude and live by a strong moral code. If you are not willing to participate, to volunteer, and to work without whining, then do not apply. Not everyone who submits an application will be inducted in the club due to the limited number of members that we may have each year.
