The Valero Energy Foundation awarded a $5,000 grant in support of the upcoming 2020 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) conference.  The funds will enable additional high school juniors from underprivileged communities throughout the district who otherwise would not have been able to attend the upcoming January 17-20 conference.
Pictured L-R are David Wiechmann (member of San Antonio at Dominion Club attending on behalf of RYLA), Joe Gorder (Valero Energy Corporation CEO) and Seymour Battle (member of the San Antonio Club who sat on the VEF grant selection committee).  RYLA is chaired by Ron Greenberg (member of Alamo Heights Club)
