Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

This week, three of the five students who attended RYLA spoke of their experiences. Cian Ryan, Raquel Gifford and Jacqueline Kocik all said it was a great experience. They all learned more about their leadership skills and how to use those skills. When they arrived at RYLA they did not know what to expect. The “high energy” level of the RYLA leaders got them excited right away.

One speaker who made a big impression on the students was a young woman who suffered a traumatic brain injury in high school a few years ago.
