We've already introduced you to one of our 2011 Brownell’s/NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors, and here's your chance to meet another of these incredible young people making a difference within the shooting sports and the Youth Cooperative Organization they represent. Next up is 17-year old Bailey Kate Conner from Malta Bend, Missouri:
I am one of the 2011 Brownell’s/NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors, representing the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA). I compete in .22 light rifle and trap shooting within the NHSRA’s shooting sports. I also shoot trap through my Future Farmers of America (FFA)chapter. I am an avid deer hunter and I have started shooting a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol.
As a member of the Missouri High School Rodeo Association I also compete in breakaway roping, goat tying, team roping, and cutting. I have qualified for Nationals for the last 3 years in .22 light rifle and breakaway roping.
I am a senior at Santa Fe High School and I am very involved with many different organizations. I am the Vice President of my FFA chapter and chaplain of the Area IV FFA association. I am also the President of Students Against Drunk Driving, Vice President of FCCLA, Student Council Secretary, and very active in the honors choir.
My goals after graduation are to attend Northwest Missouri State University and obtain a degree in Agricultural Education.
Congratulations on being chosen as one of our 2011 Youth Ambassadors, Bailey Kate! We'll have profiles on the remaining four young people selected for the 2011 term, so bookmark NRAblog for quick access to news about Youth Programs and nearly 180 other programs run by NRA.
