President: Lexi Kantor

 
Lexi Kantor is the President of Boston Rotaract in 2018-19, and formerly served as the club Vice President in 2017-18. She is the People & Culture Coordinator for a small software company in Government Center. Her love affair with Rotary started when she was in high school and her friend convinced her to sign up for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) with him. RYLA exposed her to the world of service and the concept of leadership, all while teaching her about this wonderful organization that does so much good for our communities. Feeling inspired, she went on to start her high school’s first ever Interact Club, and ran it successfully with her co-president (and about 20 members) for 2 years until she graduated. One of their biggest accomplishments was raising over $2,000 for Shelterbox, a Rotary partner that helps with disaster relief all over the world.
 
In her year as President of Boston Rotaract Club, some of her goals are to increase our exposure in Boston, focus heavily on member engagement and experience, and continue to educate and engage our District and local Rotary Clubs about diversity & inclusion within the organization.

volunteer service co-chair: kaitlin Vautour

 
Kaitlin is a proud Boston Rotaract member going on three years of involvement. This will be her second year as a service co-chair. Coming into Rotaract, what made her feel most involved was the service opportunities. This is what made her strive to help on the board! What she loves most about her role is the ability to reach out into the community and help. The feeling of utilizing your time to help those in need is a feeling like no other! In her personnel life she is a researcher, working at Siemans Heathineers and focusing on point of care technology. She loves to hike, travel, and go out for drinks to socialize with friends!
 
Have a great service idea? Perfect! Let Kaitlin know!
 
 

volunteer service co-chair: Jacob henner

 

Jacob is the Service Co-Chair in 2018-19, along with Kaitlin Vautour. His job within the club is to find service opportunities and to coordinate their execution. 

Jacob grew up in Atlanta, and went to the University of Georgia where he got his degree in Marketing. He moved up to Boston in September 2017 and works in marketing for a  company called Arch Auto Parts. He began attending Rotaract events soon after moving to Boston because it provided a social community as well as a group with whom he could serve the community at large. Boston is historically a civic-oriented city, and Jacob is happy to contribute. 

 If you are looking to get involved in serving the community, let him know! You don't have to be inducted to attend events and Rotaract is welcoming to newcomers. Also, if you have a charity or organization affecting positive change that could use help, let him know!
