National leadership training course for young graduates in pairs



The Sandpoint Kiwanis Club recently offered scholarships to Ryan Doko and Elliot Lowman, both members of Boy Scout Troop 111, to attend the National Youth Leadership Training Course.

Doko is the troop’s Senior Patrol Leader and Elliot Lowman is Deputy Senior Patrol Leader. Both were excited and enthusiastic about what they learned at the end of this challenging course.

“It was quite an evening that ended with a great dinner and recognition of the various Scouts’ accomplishments,” the two men said. “It was amazing how quiet it was when we walked out to go home.”

It’s amazing, but not surprising, that every Scout provided a scholarship to the NYLT, by the Sandpoint Kiwanis Club, has gone on to earn their Eagle award, said Dick Vail of Sandpoint Kiwanis.

Troop 111 has had 24 Eagle Scouts in the past 10 years, and it looks like two more are on the way, Vail said.

“Interestingly, past Eagle Scout recipients have attributed their leadership skills to NYLT and its training values,” Vail said.

Doko and Lowman were supported at their graduation party by six Kiwanis members who made the trip to share the exceptional and joyful moment of the Scouts.

The duo will present their experiences at the July 11 Kiwanis luncheon.
