Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary, at the meeting on May 5, interviewed candidates to attend this year’s RYLA gathering at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio, June 10-14. They are proud to announce the selection of Brittany Sisson and Andrea Sheller of Garfield High School and Jake Sweet of Windham High School as their representatives to the program. Also present at the meeting was Darren Karlove who attended in 2010 and gave a thumbnail sketch of the activities involved and the positive outcomes they had in his life. He was appreciative of the great mix of talents, styles, backgrounds and leadership qualities that were present in the program and the participants. He felt that it was a life-changing experience.
Andrea and Brittany are both members of InterAct and the Garfield Marching Pride. Andrea is active in Girl Scouts and her church youth group; she aspires to be a judge. Brittany is a riding instructor-English, writes poetry and hopes to enter the field of biochemistry or microbiology, primarily in research. Jake is president of the Windham HS National Honor Society and the captain of the 2012 football team. They’ve all earned their chops in leadership and hope to expand their capabilities still further.
