Thursday, August 17th, was the annual meeting scheduled to recognize and celebrate this year’s District Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) participants.
The two one week sessions are held at the YMCA facility in Estes Park and host approximately 350 high school juniors and seniors from Colorado, Nebraska, Idaho, and Wyoming all sponsored by local Rotary Clubs for a week of intense leadership training and fun.
Information about the program is available on the District RYLA website: rmryla.org.
Following dinner each of the students present introduced their parents and family members and gave a brief summary of the highlights of their week in June in Estes Park. No one was bored, everyone came back exhausted, all came away with leadership tools and lasting friendships.
