MONTREAL, CANADA — Scottish Pilot Club President Terry Gallman and President Elect Dorothy Tyson recently attended the 95th Pilot International Convention.

More than 620 Pilots from four countries and geographic areas attended the global event.

The Convention opened with a Flag Ceremony with Pilots from around the world, some in native dress. Terry Gallman marched in with the North Carolina District of Pilot International.

Participants attended workshops, learned about important issues facing communities globally, elected international officers, voted on the 2016-2017 Pilot International Budget and helped set the future direction for Pilot International.

Gallman accepted an “Outstanding Pilot Club Visibility Award” for the Scottish Pilot Club. This award is presented to a Club that excels in telling its story to the community it serve. The Scottish Pilot Club publishes a monthly newsletter and uses print, radio and social media to share their activities. Additionally, the Scottish Pilot Club received an award for volunteer service hours.

During the past year, the Scottish Pilot Club has made donations to InAsMuch, Saint Andrews Equestrian Therapy Program, Scotland Cancer Center and Special Olympics. The Club awards a Scholarship to a high school student pursuing higher education. Members teach kindergarteners how to protect their brains through Pilot International’s signature program, BrainMinders. The Scottish Pilot Club collaborates with the Laurinburg Pilot Club to develop youth through the Anchor Club at Scotland High School.
