You may not have realized what a BIG DEAL our little MORYLA is in Rotary, on a global scale. This is Missouri Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and each year, 100 high school juniors from all over the state are selected to attend. Most of the kids don't even know what they are going to, but their parents and teachers encourage them to go, so yep, they have to. They arrive on a Sunday afternoon, usually not knowing a soul, and by Wednesday night, they have life-long friends, they have extraordinary, newfound confidence in themselves, they know that one person can make a big impact, and they have participated on a team that puts together a realistic, workable service project. MORYLA has grown so much that there are now TWO sessions each Summer, one in June, one in July, hosting 100 high school juniors at each session. Both sessions were FULL this year.
