Five of the seven 2010 Brownells Youth Ambassadors are here on the scene at the NRA’s 139th Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Charlotte. Thanks to the generosity of Frank and Pete Brownell, the Ambassadors are attending the entire convention.
The Brownells are pictured at left with the Ambassadors and Bill Poole, NRA’s Director of Education and Training.
“Keep up the good work,” Frank Brownell told the youth. The group enjoyed a quiet moment at the Brownells booth on Friday, sharing brown and yellow cupcakes with their sponsors. The Ambassadors presented the Brownells a plaque with a picture of the group at the 2010 SHOT Show, which symbolized the beginning of the Brownells' affiliation with the program.
"These kids are just so appreciative of the chance to be here, among all these NRA members, and all this excitement," Claudia Olsen, who manages the Ambassador Program, told NRAblog. "We've been together today, bouncing around the Exhibit Hall and meeting with industry folk, and tomorrow we'll do a Refuse To Be A Victim seminar and more."
