News & Views - Feb, 1994 Issue #26 

Sandpoint, ID. 83864
Doug Kim-Brown, Executive Director
(208) 265-0207 

ECHO SPRINGS' Executive Director, Doug Kim-Brown, reports the Transition Studies Center has been very active this past fall for young people in transition to college, attending college, and/or entering the workforce. 

There has been a steady stream of visiting educational consultants and other professionals to the 160-acre ranch 10 miles southeast of Sandpoint. Fifteen hundred brochures and 400 information packets have gone out and over 85 students have been formally referred. 

In addition to all the regular activity, ECHO SPRINGS has also produced the sounds of excavation, road building, and digging a fire pond for multiple use as a skating rink and swimming hole. 

Painting, remodeling, lots of pipe laying, and a lodge addition have kept carpenters AND STUDENTS busy this fall also. 

Classes and workshops on campus and at N. Idaho College, and field trips are preparing present students for high school completion, general college studies and a nursing program. 

Some of the adjunct faculty this fall have been Dr. Paul Zolbrod, an English professor from Allegheny College; Dr. Michael Swiderski, an expert in youth leadership development; and Landon Carter, of Human Factors, Inc. who presented a weekend workshop on communications. 

Local resources are helping students develop personal fitness plans, personal budgets, wellness evaluations, and resumes. 

Doug Kim-Brown started the New Year with the first issue of the Center's newsletter. His goal is to "empower the students of ECHO SPRINGS to move from being passive onlookers to active participants in life."
