Phoenicia Rotary to sponsor exchange students

Phoenicia — The Phoenicia Rotary is willing to sponsor two students entering 11th grade in September with full scholarships for the Rotary Youth Leadership Award conference.
Qualified candidates are those high school students finishing their sophomore year who demonstrate the potential to benefit from a program designed to nurture and instill confidence in their leadership skills and abilities. The conference dates are Sunday, June 27-Thursday, July 1 at the Mount St. Mary’s College in Newburgh.
