SOUTHBRIDGE — The Rotary Club of Southbridge is helping strong leaders become stronger.

The Rotary Club will be taking six sophomore students from Southbridge and Charlton to stay at Worcester State University from Friday, June 24 until Sunday, June 26 for their Rotary Youth Leadership Award program.

The students will take classes to further teach them how to be strong leaders, build self-confidence and how to better communicate, which teaches them how to communicate without speaking.

"The Rotary is a world-wide club with thousands of branches and millions of members," said Rotary member Dino Tata, who also conducts many of the interviews for the RYLA. "Every club has its mission. Our mission as a local club is to help students. We send them to leadership seminars, we give out thousands of dollars in scholarships every year and we do that to Southbridge High and Bay Path."

The students selected from Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School are Nathan Young, of Charlton, Ben Champney, of Southbridge, Gabrielle Bailey, of Charlton and Megan Muise, of Charlton. The students selected from Southbridge High School are Faith Macharia, Yolanda Silyvongxay, Trey Salce, Ariana Rivas, Kristina Yaede and Kelsey Aponte, all from Southbridge.
