Areas 1, 2, and 3
Darcy Coulter Hello my name is Darcy Coulter and I am the District Delegate for areas 1, 3, and 3. I’m a sophomore at Fall River High School; and an avid member in our school’s Interact club, FFA chapter, and volunteer at Mayer’s Memorial Hospital through the Inter-mountain Mayer’s Healthcare Foundation on my free time. I have been apart of Interact for one year and look forward to 3 more wonderful years! Some of my hobbies include cross country, track and field, running half-marathons, swimming, SCUBA diving, babysitting, cooking, baking, and tutoring. My plans for the future are participating in the Boston Marathon and becoming a neurologist that works with special need kids and adults. I am so excited to be able to be in District Council and serve more communities and clubs with more new, amazing people!
Puneet Mann Hello! My name is Puneet Mann and I will be a junior at Pleasant Valley High School. I am this year’s District Delegate for areas 1,2, and 3 as well as the activities coordinator. I’m a current IB/AP student and have been involved with Interact since the 7th grade. I am running for VP of the Interact Board of Directors at my school and created a service project this year sending supplies to Syrian refugees in Greece. I enjoy volunteering at Enloe Medical Center, playing on my school’s field hockey team, reading, listening to music, and hanging out with friends as well as figure skating. Interesting fact: I’m a 3 time national champion in figure skating and have been competing since I was 4.
Aleczia Harlan My name is Aleczia. I attend Willows High. I am going into my senior year of high school. I enjoy doing various sports; including basketball and tennis. I have been part of interact for a year as well as various other clubs. I consider myself very ambitious. I plan to attend college, preferably a university, right out of highschool. I enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures. I try my best to greet the world with a smile in order to make everyone feel welcome and encouraged. I enjoy being challenged and organizing. One of my flaws is that I sometimes have a singular idea on how something should be, but I help to overcome that by listening to others ideas and incorporating them in with my own. I work hard to achieve my goals and if I fail to succeed, I use the information I learned to work towards another goal.

Swetha Sankar Hi! My name is Swetha Sankar and I will have the pleasure of being one of your District 11 Delegate for the next year! As a junior at California High school who is a part of the Interact family, I must say that Interact has made such a lasting impression on my life and I can honestly state that I love the club and the people in it. It has definitely helped me grow, so in return, I would like to help other people in any way that I can. Some quick facts about me are: I like to hike and participate in outdoor activities (anything that gets my blood pumping) and am quite cheesy at times. Playing piano and guitar are some of my hobbies and I don’t hesitate to boldly break out into song sometimes. I am also quite the daredevil sometimes (my bucket list ranges from skydiving to sleeping on a hammock on a warm sunny day). I look forward to working with all of you! Let’s make this year the best one yet!
