The mission of Pilot International is to influence positive change in communities throughout the world. To do this, they come together in friendship and give people an outlet for service. They focus on preparing youth and young adults for service; encouraging brain safety and health; supporting those who care for others.
Great Bend Pilot club mission is to improve the quality of life in its community, whether with its annual sponsorship and support of the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, workshops and programs on autism, or its award winning BrainMinders program to teach brain injury prevention to youth and seniors and our other sponsorship of other community activities and programs Great Bend Pilot club has for 30 years been an active and educational resource in our community.
President Rhonda Knudson and Treasurer Betty Schneider with Past KS-MO District Governor Renee Johnson and Past club Secretary Mary Cramer attended the 97th annual International Pilot Convention in Nashville Tenn., to gain fresh insights, be inspired and learn from our other Pilot members nationally and internationally on how to make our contributions in our communities relevant and current.
The KS-Mo district helped to set up the convention service project in partnership with No Child Hungry, and then with other Pilot and Anchor club members packed in under an hour, 30,000 meals for those who need them the most in Nashville area. Knowing when a child or family goes hungry the brain is affected and growth and learning are not optimum.
