Maywood Rotary Club

MAYWOOD SENDS FIVE STUDENTS TO RYLA

 
 
 
ROTARY YOUTH LEADERSHIP AWARD (RYLA) is an intensive week long training program for teens and young adults, ages 14-30, aimed at developing character and leadership skills.  
 
The RYLA Program caters to selected high school juniors,  District Rotary Clubs send candidates to the program, which was held at the Indian Head Camp in Honesdale, PA. The curriculum, conducted by Rotarians and experienced college age instructors, includes public speaking, small group activities, social interaction, lectures,  inter-mingling during their free time..  RYLA stays flexible by introducing new programs, that included a CPR course this year.
 
As in the past, Maywood sent five candidates,  all from Hackensack High School.  They are Marie Said, Alexis Holmes, Nikayla Barnaby, Sean Grimsland and David Tram.
 
Following their RYLA experience, the group were guests at a Maywood Rotary lunch meeting held in the Maywood Inn where they each described their exciting week at RYLA as a true life-changing experience.
