story-thumbnail
Portage Rotary was able to offer a Virtual RYLA experience in May 2021, after having to cancel last year’s RYLA. 
 
WHAT IS VIRTUAL RYLA ALL ABOUT...
 
 Students received a “RYLAKit” with their event t-shirt and lots of goodies to guide them through the RYLA journey (and plenty of fun). They also got to spend some time with Kyle Willkom, a nationally recognized speaker and author who brought a powerful message of “Action Packed Leadership”.
 
 
The 2020 RYLA Selected Students: 
 
1. Jacob Zajicek
2. Ella Briggs 
3. Lauren Hein
4. Izabelle Krueger
5. Grayson Metzler 
6. Madeline Johnson
