As we receive the award, we can’t help but reflect that the award in our hands is not an individual achievement but a collective one. The success of RACCF-USC can be attributed to the concerted efforts of past presidents, dedicated officers, committed members, invaluable partner organizations, wise advisers, and supportive stakeholders during its 15 years of dedicating itself to fellowship through service since 2008.

This award is a reflection of the passion and hard work that has gone into every project, event, and initiative undertaken by the club. It underscores the resilience and the sense of community that defines the spirit of a school-based Rotaract club. This tangible award is a representation of the student-leaders since 2008 that have juggled, struggled, and persevered in balancing their dedication to service and their efforts for academic excellence.

The “Exceptionally-Inspiring Humanitarian Organization of the Year” award serves as a reminder that together, we can be a powerful force for creating hope and making change in our community and the world.
