This morning the Rotary Club of Wauconda hosted 3 explorers from our local fire district, who participated in Rotary's RYLA program, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award. Carson Bennett,  James Lauber and Anthony Melland shared their experiences at the retreat. They spoke of being separated from each other and learning how to socialize and work with new people from all over the world. They were task with getting out of their comfort zones in an effort to build their leadership skills. Each shared personal stories of why they enjoyed the program and how what they learned will shape their lives moving forward. James, Carson and Anthony are great examples of young people taking an active interest in their community and taking advantage of all they can, to be great future leaders.
