An Overview of RYLA

PDG Klaus Hachfeld gave us an overview of Rotary’s RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) Program at the meeting on Monday night.  Klaus talked about the time and enthusiasm that the students put into their projects and how cohesively they all worked as groups and as individuals.  It was a test of their physical coordination, strength, mental skills and communication.  They do not slow down from the time they arrive on Friday at 8:00 AM until they are picked up by their parents late on Sunday.  These outstanding young adults will be entering their junior year in the fall.  Klaus reiterated that, “Your faith in the future is given a big boost.”  The students that Sturbridge Rotary sponsored are currently working on their presentation for the Club which will take place in the next few weeks.
