About Area 9

Brrr, it’s cold in here…must be those Area 9 Peppermint Polar Bears! We consist of Interactors from 8 schools around south county – Hollister, Gilroy, and Morgan Hill. Whether we’re from Christopher, Gilroy, Pacific Point, San Benito, Oakwood, Live Oak, or Ann Sobrato, we’re all loud, proud, and always ready to serve! A special shoutout goes out to our sponsoring Rotary clubs as well – Gilroy Rotary, Gilroy Sunrise Rotary, Hollister Rotary, San Juan Bautista Rotary, and Morgan Hill Rotary – for always supporting us. Look out District 5170 – we’re here to rock the iceberg 😉

Area Director 9 | Niet Khay

Hello beautiful human beans, my name is Niet Khay and it is my honor to be serving as your Area 9 Director for this year. I am beyond excited to show what Area 9 has to offer, and have no doubt that we will take our district further than ever before!

Interact 5170 is a truly magical place, and I look forward to creating more magic this year with the ones who make it all possible – you. I hope that you are able to find 

inspiration, love, family, and a home here within Interact,  as I and countless others have. Fuel your passion and share it with the world, Dimensional and I will be here rooting for you every step of the way!


Onwards and Upwards,

Mama Polar Bear
