Sheffield Rotary chooses this year’s RYLA student

The Rotary Club of Sheffield announced their 2014 selection for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program. Adam Higby, a junior from Sheffield Area Middle High School (SAMHS), was chosen from a field of nine nominees to participate in a week-long leadership conference at Westminster College this summer.

Each year Rotary Clubs around the world provide a program to recognize and develop leadership potential among the young people within the community. Local students selected for the awards program will attend an all-expense paid leadership retreat with 149 other outstanding high school students from throughout the region. Qualifications of successful candidates include demonstrated leadership potential, public speaking ability and a good academic standing.
