Putnam County Students Attend RYLA Conference

Four Putnam County students attended the RYLA Conference held on Friday, March 18, through Sunday, March 20th, at Camp Tecumseh near Brookston, Indiana. The Greencastle Rotary Club Sponsored two students and the Romine Family Endowment/Putnam County Community Foundation sponsored two students making it possible to send four for 2016.

The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards were developed to demonstrate Rotary International’s commitment, respect, and concern for youth by encouraging, assisting, and training leaders in responsible and effective youth (peer) leadership. Participants were selected from students who have exhibited citizenship, service, and leadership potential in school, church, extracurricular, or community activities.
