This year we sent these 6 sophomore students!
They presented their weekend experience to our Rotary Club on May 16.
Established as a Rotary Structured Program in 1971, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary's leadership training program for young people.
The Rotary District 6250 RYLA program is a camp designed to build future leaders and Rotarians who exemplify the four way test.
- Is it the Truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it build good will and better friendships?
- Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
2016 Portage Rotary's
Rose Warren, Janis Nowak (Portage Rotary), Emily Scharenbroch, & Samantha Ford
For more than 100 years Rotary has united leaders: leaders from all continents, cultures, and occupations. As Rotarians, we leaders exchange ideas. We bring our expertise and diverse perspectives to help solve some of the world’s toughest problems.
But we also take action locally. It is each Rotarian’s goal to bring lasting change to the community in which he/she lives. Throughout each year, our Portage Rotary club raises money to invest in our future leaders. Each spring, the Rotary Club of Portage, provides $10,000 in scholarships to be awarded to three Portage High School seniors. It is estimated that the Portage Club has awarded close to $400,000 of scholarships over the years.
The 2016 scholarships were awarded to three incredible and deserving students. Four-year scholarships were awarded to Rose Warren, (daughter of Jackie and Doug Warren) and Emily Scharenbroch (daughter of Tim and Brenda Scharenbroch). A two-year scholarship was awarded to Samantha Ford (daughter or John and Lisa Ford). Portage Rotary is proud to be investing in their futures!
