Comes to NRA Headquarters for Youth Education Summit before shooting Smallbore at Camp Perry
Emporia, Kansas -
Two events serve as highlights every summer for those of us here at the National Rifle Association: the Youth Education Summit and the National Rifle & Pistol Championships in Camp Perry, Ohio. Bookmarking the beginning of the season with YES and the end with Camp Perry, it's seldom that the two events come together. Unless you run into someone like Megan Hilbish.
Hailing from Emporia, Kansas, Megan has been around firearms for as long as she can remember. With an enthusiastic hunter as a father, it's no wonder she started in the shooting sports early.
