Young leaders shine at Lower Blue Mountains Rotary

Six young leaders impressed Rotarians with their oratory skills at a special youth night in Emu Plains Sports Club on February 27.

Lower Blue Mountains Rotary president Rennie Schmid praised the efforts of club youth director Glenn Anslow for delivering yet another quality program to underline the immense talent of young people throughout the community.

Molly Holland of Winmalee High School told of her life changing experience at the National Science Summer School in Canberra.

Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment graduates Sasha Titov (Blaxland), Adrian Nolan (Blaxland) and Mikala Ogden (Bonnyrigg) share details of their first adventure in citizenship and leadership.

Mitchell Howlett, fourth year Business Studies student at Macquarie University, thanked Lower Blue Rotary for sponsoring his attendance at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp at Elanora Heights and the opportunity to grow leadership and life skills.

Lower Blue Mountains Rotary’s recently returned exchange student to Brazil, Calvin Canterbury, delivered an amazing summary of his 12 months in the Brazilian city of Santos.

To complete another superb Glen Anslow “production”, the club’s youngest Rotarian, Chris Mahoney, shared his educational and leadership experiences with young people and their families.

Just 25 years of age, Mr Mahoney urged the young people present to make the most of every opportunity to grow their education and leadership experiences. He emphasised that no two leaders are the same and that all leaders have their own special qualities.
