Students from area middle schools participated in the third annual Rotary Youth Leadership Activity for middle school Interact Club members on November 11th.

During the third annual Middle School Rotary Youth Leadership Activity (RYLA) on Saturday, November, 11, 2017, middle school students from Randolph-Macon Academy, Skyline and Warren County Middle School joined together to hear from Front Royal Chief of Police (and Rotary Club of Warren County Member) Kayle Magalis, as he spoke about leadership as a lifelong public servant. In celebration of Veterans Day, the group of students then wrote letters to deployed soldiers.  After enjoying some fun, bowling, and pizza, the students concluded their day. R-MA students write letters to soldiers as part of the RYLA on November 11th.

Organizer Michael Williams expressed special thanks to The Rotary Club of Warren County for covering the cost of shoes and bowling, to Rick Novak, owner of Royal Family Bowling, for hosting the event, and The Rotary Club of Front Royal for providing the funds for the pizzas.

The Randolph-Macon Academy (led by Dani Clingerman) and Skyline Middle School Interact Clubs (led by Meghan Moore and Rebecca Richardson) are sponsored by The Rotary Club of Warren County.  The Interact Club of Warren County Middle School (led by Jen Stanley and Rebecca Webster) is sponsored by The Rotary Club of Front Royal.  Both clubs are part of Rotary District 7570, Area One.
