Juniors Emma Mitchem, Maggie Gamble and Grace Kilbane have received full scholarships from the West Shore Rotary to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Training Awakening (RYLA).
Through Camp RYLA, the participants have the unique opportunity to be exposed to many facets of leadership by individuals who have already learned to be leaders in their professions or fields. Camp RYLA is an enjoyable and valuable experience for those who can meet the challenge. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas about current issues and discuss leadership and personal development with knowledgeable local and regional leaders including many District Rotarians.
Attendance at RYLA is by scholarship only. All winners are selected and funded by their local Rotary Clubs.
- Demonstrate Rotary’s respect and concern for youth.
- Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders.
- Encourage leadership of youth by youth.
- Publicly recognize young people who are providing service to their communities.
What will a Student get from CAMP RYLA?
Camp RYLA provides participants with an opportunity to exchange ideas, opinions, and beliefs with other students in a relaxed, retreat style setting. At camp, they will be involved. Participants will
develop new friendships and become a more effective role model, team player, and leader.

Approximately 2 students from the same area high school, who will be Seniors in the 2018-2019 year, will be selected for this scholarship award along with 55-65 other talented and enthusiastic leaders from high schools throughout Northeastern Ohio.
