National Shooting Sports Ambassador Program

This summer, Chase Smith (right), of the Whites Creek Critters 4-H Club was selected to represent West Virginia as an Ambassador with the National 4-H Shooting Sports Ambassador Program. He participated in a week-long training in Texas in early August to prepare him to serve in this capacity over the upcoming year. 

The program allows 4-H youth to advocate and promote the 4-H Shooting Sports program with stakeholders, donors and to represent the program at state and possibly national events. Furthermore, Ambassadors develop skills in leadership, public speaking and community service as part of the program. Please help us congratulate Chase on this accomplishment.
