Tromley to participate in National Youth Forum


May 28, 2013

This fall Lake Steven’s Chandler (CJ) Tromley will be one of 350 students nationwide to go to Washington, D.C. to participate in the National Youth Leadership Forum on National Security. (NYLF/NS).

Tromley was chosen for this Forum based on his academic standing, leadership skills and interest in a career in the Military.

The NYLF/NS: Exploring American Diplomacy, Intelligence, and Defense in Washington, D.C. is a stimulating and challenging six-day program that introduces students to careers in defense, intelligence, and the diplomatic corps

Students take part in thought-provoking question and answer sessions with highly respected, internationally recognized civilian policy makers and senior military officers, who provide rich insights into current issues and discuss the strategies that helped them succeed.

In our nation’s capital, the government’s leading academic institutions open their doors to our students, where they are educated in diplomacy, international affairs, and military strategy.

But he needs the community’s financial support to help take him to new heights.

The trip in October will cost $2,500. If you would like to donate to help Tromley in this educational experience please email his family at
