Chantel St Laurent

It is with great pleasure that the Auburn-Lewiston Rotary Breakfast Club announces our 2019 Rotary Youth Fellowship Awards (RYLA) recipient, Chantel St. Laurent.

A RYLA recipient is between the ages of 18-35, is committed to their community, education, and is on track to become an asset for both the area and their family and friends. Chantel fits that bill and more.

She is a mother of two young children, works a full time job and is on track to graduate with an associates degree in Human Services in the Spring. Chantel is very active in the state and local community in addressing the issues surrounding addiction and suicide prevention. She was presented a Community Leader award from the Maine People's Alliance in June 2019 for her work in presenting ideas to local and state leadership.

As part of the RYLA experience, Chantel will travel to Adventure Bound in Carratunk, Maine in September to join other recipients for team building exercises, as well as fun on a rope course and whitewater rafting. Rotary District 7790 incorporates part of Maine and Quebec, so dual-language adds to the team-building fun. Congratulations Chantel!
