Mentoring for the Future

John Lilak, a Professional Land Surveyor with over 28 years of surveying experience will be continuing his mentoring by instructing boys ages 7-18 in surveying at the Scouting 500. This is a role John has continually played since taking on an Adjunct Professor role at Longview Community College in 2003 and then becoming Scout Leader in 2010. The Scouting 500 is a scouting jamboree style event every four years put on by the Heart of America Council. This year it will feature 150 different activities over a 3 day period. John will be interacting with boys by teaching them more about the surveying technology of present day and also the past in the Career Exploration area of the event. The Scouting 500 will be held September 22nd thru 24th at the Kansas Speedway and is expected to have more than 10,000 in attendance.
