Eye Opener!

 

Many thanks to Par Wood. Last Tuesday several Sunup members had the pleasure of touring the Yavapai College School of Career and Technical Education facility otherwise known as CTEC. John Morgan Dean of CTEC provided our group with Lunch and a 2 hour tour of the facility.

 
CTEC provides training and college courses that provide good paying jobs. They can learn trades such as 3D Printing using sophisticated state-of-the-art equipment.
 
 
 
 

The largest and most popular program is now fabricating and flying drones. Students learn how to use their drones in agriculture, search & rescue, firefighting and many other areas. The student built drone pictured is valued at about $15,000.

 

Other programs include Pre-Engineering, Computer Numerical Control, Gunsmithing, Welding, Air Traffic Control and many more. Salaries can range from $25/hr up to $100,000 per year.

At a recent Sunup Rotary Meeting several members of the Prescott Fire Dept. joined our group to demonstrate what happens when you call 911 for a heart attack victim. What an eye opener for Sunup Rotary members. Highly trained fire department personnel demonstrated with an actual person how they handle an emergency. Each person has a specific job in a specific position for a reason. It's a choreographed concert of professionals that saves lives. Never a dull moment at a Rotary Meeting!
 
There is still time to sign up to help as an adult volunteer for RYLA 2018. If interested go to RYLA5495pinerock.org volunteer. You don’t have to be a Rotarian but it helps.      There is no cost to you, only your commitment of time and energy. The payoff for the student delegates in terms of learning and improving leadership skills, making great new friends and having fun along the way far exceeds their time commitment.
 
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards or RYLA is a program of Rotary International (RI),   and is comprised of almost 32,000 clubs located in more than 165 countries around the world. Its members form a global network of business and professional leaders, men, and women, who volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities and the world.  Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self, exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of the organization’s more than 1.2 million members.
           
Rotary clubs are organized within more than 500 R.I. districts worldwide, many of which sponsor their own RYLA programs. District 5495, the “Grand Canyon District,” incorporates 42 rotary clubs located in northwest Arizona, ranging from Phoenix to the Colorado River, Lake Havasu & Bullhead Cities, Kingman, Williams, Grand Canyon, Sedona, Verde Valley and the Prescott area.
           
Our Prescott area RYLA experience is offered to high school sophomores and juniors whom their parents, teachers and school staff have identified as showing good leadership potential.  RYLA 5495 PineRock, is held over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend in January at Camp PineRock in Prescott Arizona.
           
Our curriculum offers student leaders training in the following area:  Fundamentals of Leadership, Ethics and Leadership, the importance of communication skills in effective leadership, problem-solving and conflict management, Rotary’s purpose and service to the community, building self-confidence and self-esteem, elements of community and global citizenship, and a whole lot of fun and great new friends along the way.
           
This is truly a great and fun experience for high school students and as noted above the payoff far exceeds the time and effort given by participants.
Again, go to RYLA5495pinerock.org to volunteer as an adult, registration is open now.
