Nicole McMahon, who helps head up the Youth Education Summit, recently checked up on past participant Breanna Lincoski.
Fairfax, Virginia -
We here at NRA Headquarters are convinced there’s nothing that Y.E.S. Alumni Breanna Lincoski can’t do.
Since attending Y.E.S. in 2010, Breanna has been very busy promoting the National Rifle Association, Y.E.S. and the shooting sports programs in her community. She’s written about NRA and Y.E.S. in multiple publications including NRA’s own InSights and Traditions, attended numerous events promoting NRA’s programs including Friends of NRA banquets, and taught the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program to hundreds of boys and girls in elementary schools and youth organizations.
Breanna also had the opportunity to go hunting with Jessie Harrison on the Friends of NRA TV show along with Matt Duff and fellow 2010 Y.E.S. alumni Ryan Montgomery.
In May, Breanna was awarded a $5,000 college scholarship through the Y.E.S. Grand Scholarship for all her hard-work promoting NRA programs.
Because of her commitment and passion for the Second Amendment and the shooting sports, Breanna continues to be a young leader and represent the NRA in her community. In August, she represented her school in the Coal Queen Pageant at the 58th Annual Pennsylvania Bituminous Coal Show in Carmichaels, PA where her platform was gun safety and the Second Amendment. Although she didn’t win the competition, she showed everyone in attendance that it’s important to stand up for what one believes in.
Breanna’s luck changed this Friday when she was named homecoming queen at her high school. Not forgetting to display her Second Amendment beliefs, she took pictures with her new Kahr Arms 9mm NRA logoed pistol her father won at the Mon-Valley Friends of NRA banquet in September.
Not too many young people today have the courage to do what Breanna has done the last year and a half, but with her as a leader, she will no doubt inspire others to be active in the shooting sports and the NRA!
