JOLIET – Joliet Central and West High School seniors Silvia Onate and Casey Snow were nominated and attended the 2017 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) Conference on Oct. 6 to Oct. 9, a four-day leadership program in Wisconsin in partnership with Rotary International.
The students were nominated for their exemplary leadership and willingness to keep learning and growing.
The leadership training drew over 100 students from Chicago and suburban high schools, including Rotary Youth Exchange Students from around the world.
Onate and Snow were sponsored by the Rotary Club of Joliet with all expenses paid through a generous scholarship.
At RYLA, Onate and Snow developed leadership and character skills while gaining exposure to a variety of issues and people. They met active community leaders and learned valuable information and career skills.
