    The Cleburne Rotary club supports the youth in our community in a variety of ways. The RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards)  is an intense leadership camp experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts, where young people can develop leadership skills while having fun and making connections. Our club provided the opportunity for 3 high school kids to attend this year in Stephenville.  Several of our members provided transportation and the club paid for the camp. They learn the 4 Way Test and have lots of activities. Clint Ishmael and Melissa Dansby from our club have been involved in RYLA for our Rotary district for several years.
