Rotarians across our district supported and attended the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) held last month at the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center.
118 students from District 6860 and 3 students from Illinois Rotary clubs participated in this event. During the 2-1/2 day event, they were entertained, encouraged, and motivated by great speakers. They also learned about team work, leadership, and other skills for success. They also found time to watch the new “Star Wars” movie and attend a mini space camp. Samuel Straub, son of Madison Rotarian Kerry Straub, praised the program by saying it was “an opportunity to do something amazing.”
