11 youth attend RYLA event

Students from Jsper, Dubois, Huntingburg and Ferdinand attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards in October.

Eleven area youth attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Friday through Sunday, Oct. 26 to 28. The three-day event is held at Bradford Woods, owned and operated by Indiana University and located in rural Morgan County, taking full advantage of the wooded setting. Under the guidance of trained facilitators at Bradford Woods, RYLA participants gain valuable leadership skills through a variety of adventurous “learn by doing” opportunities.

This year’s attendees included Jacob Patterson, Breanna Coultas, Brooklyn Coultas, Cade Leistner and Grace Truesdale, Jasper; Adrienne Betz, Amber Sander and Nikita Fischers, Dubois; Cheyenne Maettler and Paige Kendall, Huntingburg; and Mady Partenheimer, Ferdinand.

A cost of $200 per student was provided by the Jasper Rotary Club and other sponsors including Darren Patterson, Laura and Paul Grammar, SVB&T and People Ready.

Jasper Rotary Club Member’s New Generations Chairwoman Kayla Dooley coordinated the logistics for the local RYLA participants and Jasper Rotary Club member Stu Holland attended the event as a weekend sponsor. Patterson attended the Sunday RYLA awards. The Rotary Club of Jasper has sponsored students to attend RYLA several prior years.
