INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP NETWORK HONORS 11 OUTSTANDING YOUNGSTERS AND SANFORD N. McDONNELL

ST. LOUIS, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- International Leadership Network will hold its Annual Awards Banquet at the Marriott West Hotel at Noon on Sunday, October 15. At this annual event, ILN will recognize 11 youngsters from across the United States and present them with the National Young Achievers Award. ILN will also present the DARE TO LEAD AWARD to Sanford N. McDonnell, Chairman Emeritus of McDonnell Douglas Corporation one of America's foremost aerospace companies.

The Dare To Lead Award recognizes Mr. McDonnell's leadership in developing programs which teach and encourage moral character. Mr. McDonnell has been involved with the Boy Scouts since a youngster in Little Rock, Arkansas, achieving Star Scout status. As an adult, he achieved Eagle Scout rank with his son. In 1983, he developed a Code of Ethics based on the Boy Scout 0ath and Laws, which became a program for adults to use in their daily business life.

In 1988, Mr. McDonnell organized the St. Louis School District's current character Education program, Personal Responsibility Education Process (PREP). This led him to a national organization known as Character Education Partnership, Inc. (CEP). Mr. McDonnell is Chairman of PREP and CEP.

The Young Achievers Program, founded and sponsored by International Leadership Network (ILN) promotes school, community and national recognition for the positive accomplishments of young people. This early recognition enhances self-esteem and encourages youth to develop and use their talents.
