Youth leaders speak at Rotary Club

Quincy High School students Savannah Little, Dylan Miller, Aidan Power and Michael Oravetz spoke at Quincy Rotary on Sept. 12 about their experiences as RYLA recipients. 
 
RYLA stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Awakening and provides an intensive leadership experience for incoming high school seniors. Attendance at RYLA is supported by fully paid scholarships provided by the generosity of the men and women of Rotary.  
 
This past summer, these four QHS students attended a camp at Grizzly Creek Ranch outside Portola. Ava Hagwood, a  Quincy native and RYLA Alumni from 2014, volunteered at the camp as a Learning Facilitator, which she said was a fancy term for Camp Counselor. She praised the RYLA experience.
