The Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo was pleased to sponsor 4 students from San Luis Obispo High School to attend this year’s RYLA, the first in-person camp in several years!  Three students completed the leadership camp (one became ill on the first day and had to return home):  Katerina Harris, Kylee McNabb, and Dawson Sennes.  Katerina and Kylee are juniors, Dawson is a sophomore and already involved in ASB leadership at their school.  All three had an outstanding, life-changing experience, and made scores of new friends from all over the district.  Kylee received two awards, one for talent show, and the other for Service Above Self.
Here is what Kylee had to say about RYLA:
“I wanted to let you know what an amazing, enriching time I had while I was there. I went into it thinking it would be more of a cheesy camp, but I was so wrong. Coming out of it, I realized I'd made so many friends and connections, and learned so much about myself. I wouldn't trade that experience for the world. So much value came out of RYLA for me, and I'm so grateful that the Rotary Club of SLO decided to sponsor me for the event. I truly feel like a different person now. Again, thank you so much!”
