The Campus Rotaract Club at UC Davis has received the Change Maker Award from Rotary International District 5160. The award is given to Rotaract organizations “for making positive and significant change in the community and the world.”

The UCD club received the award for organizing and hosting the Far Western Rotaract Conference this year in Davis. More than 300 Rotaract attendees came from as far away as Oregon and Mexico.

Jeff Stromberg, 2011-12 president of the Rotary Club of Davis, which sponsors the Campus Rotaract Club, accepted the award on their behalf at a recent district meeting.

Rotaract is a service organization for young adults, ages 18-30. The Campus Rotaract Club devotes hundreds of hours of public service on campus and in the Davis community each year.
