Cincinnati, Ohio, May 27, 2021–   Saint Ursula Academy is proud to announce that Molly Gruber ’23 of Evendale has been selected by the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce to be part of the Regional Youth Leadership (RYL) Class of 2022. 


To be considered for the program, students must be rising juniors, maintain a 3.0 GPA, demonstrate strong leadership skills, and be approved by their high school principal or guidance counselor.

Each month, the students will be presented with new challenges and opportunities for intellectual, creative, social and personal growth. 


When speaking of this year’s RYL class, Ann Marie Whelan, Program Director of RYL said, “This program will give our student participants the resources to prepare them to have a positive impact on our communities for years to come.
