Students at Concordia University have been approved as the newest Rotaract Club in the world
Much anticipated news was received from Rotary International this week as word arrived that the Rotaract Club of Concordia University, Nebraska had been certified as the 10,904th Rotaract club in the world. Spearheaded by Jacob Cornelio, a Sacramento, CA native, a group of Concordia students has been meeting over the past several months to discuss forming a Rotaract club at Concordia.

Rotaract clubs bring together people ages 18-30 to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service.  From big cities to rural villages, Rotaract is changing communities worldwide. The 15 members of the Rotaract Club at Concordia join more than 250,000 other Rotaractors in 184 counties in demonstrating "Service above Self."

Throughout this process, Seward Rotary Club President, and Concordia faculty member, Russ Sommerfeld has been a great resource and advisor to the students. The support of both Rotary District 5650 Governor Tom Cardwell and Rotaract Liaison Yolanda Hoffman, as well as the UNL Rotaract Club, should also be recognized.

The Seward Rotary Club congratulates the Concordia Rotaractors on this accomplishment. We look forward to working with the Rotaract Club of Concordia University, Nebraska to serve others and make an impact during the years to come. Congratulations!
