About a dozen potential Rotaract members at South Dakota State University showed up for our first official meeting on November 18th, 2019. Fittingly, the meeting was held in the “Wahlstrom Room” in the Animal Science Complex at SDSU, named in honor of longtime Rotarian Rick Wahlstrom! Jennifer Soma, Kay Norton, Don Norton, Toby Uecker, Michael Gonda, and Nicole Rawden shared with these students the mission of Rotary and how Rotary has impacted their lives. The students then elected a club President, Brittany Kludt. We hope to coordinate more activities and projects in the upcoming semester. If you have questions, Kay Norton and Michael Gonda are serving as co-advisers for Rotaract.  Like our page on Facebook at Brookings Rotaract.
