Nevada City Rotary enjoyed a fun and relaxing 1st Thursday Social at The National with our own Karen McDonald as keynote facilitator!  Karen delighted Rotarians with both our own hands-on REGL experiences and her personal stories of what led her to teaching, Rotary, and head cheerleader for Mount Saint Mary Academy students who are headed to REGL.
Dennis, Tom, Doug and Cathy engaged in a "low ropes" exercise as Karen coaches and talks about "her kids" who will be participating in REGL this month.  Obviously a proud teacher at Mt St Mary, Karen spoke about each individual student and her expectations of what they will gain from their upcoming REGL camp experience.  She is an inspiration clearly to her students and to all of us!

Rotary Eighth Grade Leadership Program

District 5190 offers the Rotary Eighth Grade Leadership Program (REGL) for teams of 5 students per school who attend a weekend camp experience. The purpose of REGL is to provide high quality leadership training with a strong emphasis on ethics to selected 8th grade students who have demonstrated leadership skills. Our aim is to provide these selected students with tools for the difficult choices that they face as they move into high school.

Nevada City Rotary is proud to sponsor students from Mt St Mary Academy with special thanks to Karen for coordinating and encouraging their full participation. The students will go to REGL at Grizzly Creek Ranch September 23-25.  Students from Ready Springs, Magnolia, Union Hill, and Lyman Gilmore schools will participate along with Mt St Mary.
