Maddie Hale, a student at South Carlton High School, was the club’s representative at Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) in June 2015. Approximately 50 students attended the leadership conference at Lake Placid in New York State. She described the program of activities designed to enhance leadership skills and commented on what she had gained from the experience. This statement on her certificate of participation summarizes the goals of the program: “RYLA aims to demonstrate Rotary’s respect for youth; provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders; encourage leadership of youth by youth; recognize publicly young people who are rendering service to their communities.”
