July 19, 2017 -- Earlier this month, five Marcellus students and one graduate participated in the Central New York Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) experience: Natalie Caldwell, Lauren Lundrigan, Dan Wrona, Jane Stewart, Dan Posecznick and 2017 graduate Quimonei Bell-Hunter (who served as a volunteer junior staff member during the event).

The students spent three days at Cazenovia College, where they engaged in team-building activities; attended interactive sessions with top inspirational leaders from the six counties around Syracuse; designed possible future service projects; shared their own unique talents; networked with peers; and supported each of the other 41 participants in completing the Syracuse University Low and High Element Adventure Challenge Course.

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary Clubs and districts around the world. Student participants develop their skills as leaders while having fun and making connections. 

“This experience not only helped these young people to develop their potential as service-minded leaders, it also supported them in developing creative problem-solving strategies,” said Marcellus Director of Staff Development and Training Deborah Glisson. “Beyond the benefits the RYLA weekend had for the students, the experience energized and challenged the adult supervisors to discover our own powers to become influential community leaders.”
