Message from Our District Governor

By: John David Padgett
Your District Youth Services Team just completed another successful Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) event. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Lee Muckey, Leslie Bryant and their leadership team. RYLA engaged over one hundred young people in an intense leadership experience at the Airfield Conference Center in Wakefield, Virginia. The participants developed their skills as leaders while having fun and making connections. Youth Services is one of the programs that makes a significant difference on the next generation of leaders.
