Future Business and Community Leaders?

Hamble Valley Rotary Club recently offered two lucky students the opportunity to attend a Leadership Course. Faye Denham, and Maurice Yap, who left Wyvern College in July, gained a Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), an award designed to develop the leadership skills of young people. The two students were among the youngest in their group, so were really tested to gain their Certificates.
