Today marks 10 years since the Rotaract Club of New Kingston (NKRC) was chartered under the sponsorship of our parent club the Rotary Club of New Kingston. The club was chartered on April 1, 2004 under the leadership of Charter President Marsha Smikle. Since then the club has seen tremendous growth and made numerous service milestones in Jamaica and District 7020. From our signature projects life Feeding the Homeless and assisting with the JFLL program at Saxthorpe Methodist to our newer initiatives such as the Wing Sauce competition, NKRC has proven to be a very multifaceted organization that caters to not only the needs of our society but also members. We are a family of young professionals using our knowledge and skill set to positively impact the future of our nations.
Fellowship is an important part of NKRC and it is our knack for fellowship that has lead to numerous collaborations with Rotaract & Rotary Clubs within and outside District 7020.
We have also produced strong leaders which is the leading contributor to the numerous members of NKRC who have be selected or nominated to served our district in various capacities. Our current District Rotaract Representative (head Rotaract in District 7020) is Past President Julie Ramchandani and we currently have five members serving under her able leadership.
We have won a few awards over the years because of the excellent activities we have been able to implement:
2011-2012 Bronze Award Recipient
2011-2012 Best Club Service Award
2012-2013 First Quarter Silver Award

As we celebrate this milestone, we look forward to continuing to strive for excellence as we “Fellowship through Service.”
