Pickett named Rotaractor of Year

Richard M Isom  | Published on Thursday, August 1, 2013

ST. GEORGE — Jayme Pickett, 2012-13 president of the Dixie State University’s Rotaract Club, has been named Rotaractor of the Year from among dozens of college-age nominees around the state. Pickett, currently serv­ing an LDS mission in Ber­lin, returned from her first Rotary experience as a freshman at DSU and newly elected club offi­cer, ready to move her club forward and partici­pating wherever possible in providing service on campus and in the com­munity.

In her year as presi­dent, DSU’s Rotaract Club took part in Club Rush, opening carnival, the school’s homecoming parade and organized a special needs Halloween carnival.

She also motivated her fellow Rotaractors to help with multiple service projects in the community with local Rotary club members, including St. George Ro­tary’s dictionary project, which provides dictionaries to all 3rd graders in Washington County.

DSU Rotaractors also volunteered in carnival games booths for Swiss Days; provided support for track and field events in the Huntsman World Senior Games; helped raise money for local schools at the Halloween Haunted Cave; painted and re-roofed a home in the community and spearheaded a project to send toys and other small gifts to children in need in selected third-world countries.

In addition to local volunteer service, Pickett raised funds and traveled to Mexico where, with 300 other energetic Rotaractors, built homes and schools over a two-week period last summer.

Rotaract (a name derived from a combination of Rotary and action) originally began as a Rotary Inter­national youth program in 1968. It is now a rapidly growing organization with more than 9,030 clubs and nearly 208,000 members around the world.
