On February 9, 2016, the advisors and officers of the Magnolia West High School (MWHS) Interact Club provided members of the Magnolia Rotary Club an update on the efforts of the MWHS Interact Club's efforts to raise money for the Rotary Polio Eradication Fund as well as tell us a little about new projects they are thinking about. Pictured from left to right are MWHS Interact Teacher/Advisor Lora Brown, MWHS Interact VP Ben Watzak, MWHS Interact President Alexa Vulgamott,  MWHS Interact Treasurer Sean Kenyan, MWHS Sergeant At Arms Thomas Herben, and MWHS Interact Teacher/Advisor Nicole Fielder.
The MWHS Interact Club represented by their Club Officers told the members of the Magnolia Rotary Club that they have been raising money for the Rotary Polio Eradication Fund by collecting money from students and then dipping the students little finger in purple ink to let everyone know that student had given to the fund. Magnolia Rotary Club President Real Provencher asked the MWHS Interact Club if they knew why they used purple ink. They were not sure so Real told them that in the actual Polio inoculation efforts, everyone receiving the Polio vaccine had their little finger dipped in purple ink to indicate they had received the Polio vaccine.  Real told the MWHS Interact Club that using that method to raise funds for Polio eradication was quite a good idea.
The treasurer of the MWHS Interact Club, Sean Kenyan then let everyone know that their club had raised $306.67 to give to the Rotary Polio Eradication Fund.
When asked what their next fundraisers were going to be, the MWHS Interact Club stated that their next fundraisers were in the early concept phase at this time but that they were thinking of doing a fun run where those not running would throw paint ball balloons at the runners who would come across the finish line with many colors on them. They were also thinking of collecting pet food for a Tomball animal shelter.
