Congratulations to Chinyere (Chi Chi) Okonkwo '20 and Joshua Denegall '20, two Bishop McNamara students who were sponsored by The Rotary Club of Upper Marlboro for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) this past weekend February 16th through 18th.
The Rotary International District 7620 RYLA program is an intense 3 day, 2 night leadership training program that is designed to recognize, encourage and further develop the leadership skills of 10th, 11th and 12th grade high school students who have shown a potential for rendering important service to their schools and communities. The program was held at the 4-H Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland. More than 150 high school students attend RYLA every year sponsored by area Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 7620.
