The 2019 Positive Choices Youth Conference is October 29 & 30, 2019. Our speaker this year is Kylan Klauzer.
Kylan Klauzer was born and raised in southeastern Montana. He graduated from Baker High School in 2002. He went on to attend Dickinson State University where he received his Bachelor’s Degree and eventually a Master’s Degree in Public Administrations. Kylan has been employed as a law enforcement officer for 14 years and primary duties are to supervise of the Criminal Investigative Division in Dickinson. During his career as a law enforcement officer Kylan has served as a patrolman, less lethal munitions instructor and Taser instructor. Kylan is currently assigned to serve in roles as the senior SWAT Team Leader for the regions SWAT team, a combatives/use of force instructor and a polygraph examiner. Kylan currently resides in Dickinson with his wife and two daughters. He was recently inducted in his university’s athletic hall of fame for his accomplishments in athletics. In the fall of 2017, Kylan graduated from Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) National Academy, where President Donald Trump spoke to their graduating class. Kylan’s passion for speaking to kids comes from the harsh realities his childhood taught him about his own individual responsibility and the impact of making POSITIVE CHOICES. Domestic violence, alcoholism and substance abuse have been a part of Kylan’s family for generations, and helped make him who he has become. Kylan’s favorite thing to encourage kids to do is to…BE YOU!
Kylan will be traveling to speak with the students of Wibaux and Ekalaka on Tuesday, Oct. 29 and Plevna and Baker students on Oct. 30. Then there will also be a session for the adults on Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. at the Longfellow School Gym. Childcare plus a light snack and refreshments will also be provided at the Longfellow School. We are very excited about this year’s program we hope that you are able to join us for this year’s session.
