Three Wabash County students attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) Camp on April 17-19 in Brookston as the 2015 Wabash Rotary Club delegates.
 
Northfield High School juniors Madalyn Dale and Jessika Krom joined Southwood High School sophmore Paul Farlow at Camp Tecumseh YMCA Outdoor Center to develop leadership skills among chosen students from 55 other Rotary Clubs in northern Indiana.
 
“(RYLA) is an opportunity to mentor promising young leaders that are serving their own communities and beyond,” said Dana Brady, local committee chair. “The whole idea behind this, as far as this club is concerned, is that we believe in the program. We’ve seen what it’s done for a number of years.”
