McKenna Bliss receives scholarshipThe Branson Daybreakers Rotary Club awarded School of the Ozarks freshman McKenna Bliss with a scholarship to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA) at William Woods College.  The scholarship will cover expenses associated with attending the summer RYLA academy, Rotary's leadership training program for young people.

A Daybreakers selection committee chose McKenna based on her demonstrated service to the community.

“Daybreakers wants to recognize Miss Bliss for her commitment to service and honor her publicly in front of her peers,” said Gabe Miller, Daybreakers member who is active in the New Generations Program.

Branson Daybreakers President Inez Gibbs, Assistant District Governor for Rotary District 6080 Shawn Pingleton and Mr. Miller presented the scholarship to McKenna during an S of O morning assembly on Wednesday, April 3.  For more information on RYLA, go to
