Rotary Club of Emporia

Rotary Youth Leadership - A Great Experience

Posted by Jim Wayman on Sep 19, 2017
Each year our club contributes toward the cost of two high schoolers who have finished their sophomore year to attend the RYLA Conference at Lawrence. Storm Dial enthusiastically described his experiences at RYLA, and is applying his leadership skills in the many activities of which he is involved at Emporia High School. One principle he is trying to practice is "leading from behind"...he is learning not to micro-manage others but encouraging others to get involved and coaching them to succeed. Storm's favorite activity is STUCO. He enjoys meeting and interacting with others and getting involved. It looks like Storm is actively practicing leadership skills every day!
