Four Dedham High School students have been chosen to attend Rotary's Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) weekend on June 27-28, 2015 at Worcester State University.  Selected based on their high academic achievement are students:  Samantha Letsche, Margaret Downing, Kaitlyn Naddaff, and Faith Koroma-Cohen.  For two days the students will participate in leadership training programs and activities.  Many other Rotary Clubs throughout Area 7910 in Massachusetts also participate, and the students do not know each other before the start of the program. No cell phones are permitted for the weekend, except in emergency situations.  Dedham Rotarians Carmen Nazario and Yovanny Arias have escorted and worked with the students in this program for several years, and will do so again this year.  Carmen states that it's difficult for the students to get used to the "no-cell phone" policy, and encourages students to more direct, one-on-one communication with each other.  However, by the time the weekend is at a close, the students rarely miss their phones; instead, they are tearfully bidding goodbye to their newfound friends.
