Newman Smith Interact, North Texas Pioneers Rotary and Carrollton-Farmers Branch Rotary joined together to achieve one purpose in this the year to Empower the Girl. The Newman Smith Interact Club of Carrollton raised $232 from a sale of Halloween and Christmas items at the North Texas Pioneers Rotary Club, a $250 donation from John Dodd (president of the CFB Rotary Club) with the remainder of the money from the Interact club's budget to complete the money that is needed to sponsor a girl from Malawi for her room, board and tuition for the year.
