Though they have returned to their normal routines, Iola students who recently attended a Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp in Oklahoma, have brought their lessons back with them and are applying them to their lives.
Judy Brigham, president of the Iola Rotary Club, said the camp aims to change lives and teach the youth leadership skills.
?This camp is so good. You should see the difference from when they first leave and when they come back. Several of these students have a difficult time speaking in front of a group and to others, but they come back with the ability to do anything,? she said.
