Rotaract — a campus-based, community service organization affiliated with Rotary International — is Capital Community College’s newest student organization thanks to the sponsorship of the Rotary Club of Hartford

The launch of a Rotaract chapter at Capital stems from organizing meetings held during the Spring 2013 semester, including an April 29th History class hosted by faculty member Marcus Lawson and support from Dean of Student Services Doris Arrington and Student Activities Director Derrick Curry.

CCC Rotaract Club officers for 2013-2014 include: President Brennden Colbert, Vice President Johnoy Nelson, Secretary Ilda Lirioni, Treasurer Cynthia Recoder, Public Relations Representative Darnell Jarett and Community Outreach Chair Jaresse Mitchell.

In the fall 2012 semester the Rotary Club of Hartford established a scholarship endowment for Hartford residents with a $25,000 gift to the College Foundation. 

Capital students between 18 and 30 are invited to join Rotaract which provides opportunities to volunteer locally and internationally, to connect with professionals who are members of Hartford Rotary and to build career contacts.  Rotaract is part of a global movement with 8,400 chapters at higher educational institutions in 170 countries.

The Rotary Club of Hartford celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011, having been founded by Travelers Insurance executive Charles Northrop. It was the 21st local chapter recognized by Chicago-based Rotary International that includes 34,000 clubs and 1.2 million members. Rotary International, among other things, has been a key force in the eradication of polio.
