BIG SKY – The Rotary Club of Big Sky has selected three Lone Peak High School students to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp this summer.
The club selected Bella Butler, Bianca Godoy and Luisa Locker – all of whom will be in 10th grade next year – based on their leadership potential, academic achievement and involvement in extracurricular activities. During the camp, the students will hear speaker presentations and participate in challenging group discussions and activities.
Held by Montana’s Rotary District 5390 at Luccock Park Camp south of Livingston, the camp includes a weeklong leadership skills conference and draws students from around Montana and northern Wyoming.
