The Montana Youth Challenge Academy, in partnership with the Montana National Guard 1-189th General Support Aviation Battalion and the University of Montana Western, will host an Administrator Airlift event throughout the business day on Thursday, May 5, 2022.
Please be aware that two Black Hawk and two Chinook helicopters will be landing and taking off from the football practice fields on the south side of the Montana Western campus on this day.
This event allows Montana high school administrators, counselors, and staff an opportunity to tour MYCA/UMW facilities, observe cadets and staff, and learn more about the Challenge model of youth development and the University of Montana Western and Experience One.
Attendees will be flying in from locations across the state including the cities of Kalispell, Missoula, Great Falls, Helena, Butte, Billings, and Bozeman. The purpose of this event is to create statewide partnerships so that the MYCA can better assist at-risk youth. The National Guard is also able to complete valuable required training hours from the event.
To ensure the safety of the university and Dillon community, it is critical that all observers stay clear of the UMW practice fields on May 5. For more information, please contact [email protected] or call 406-960-4449.
