Our program today was provided by the junior students at El Camino High School who recently attended this year’s RYLA conference in Idyllwild. All five students really enjoyed the conference andmeeting students from other high schools in San Diego County who are the leaders or potential leaders in their schools. They all seemed to have bonded very well with their “families” at the conference.
The speaker that most of them identified as their favorite was a former POW in North Vietnam. The students that we sponsored and their plans for the future after high school are:
Kirpa Singh plans to attend the University of Sydney and study to become a neurosurgeon.
Carol Girgess plans to attend Stanford University and study to become an ENT surgeon
. JC Losack plans to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo or UC Santa Barbara for computer engineering
Nicole Buturla also plans to attend Stanford University to pursue a career in neurology.
Chandler White plans to attend Cal State University Long Beach and major in either criminology, music or nursing.
Our RYLA selection committee is to be commended in selecting such bright, articulate student representatives from El Camino High and a special thanks to TG Vallas for all the hard work that he does with RYLA every year.
