This week’s Friends of NRA Volunteer of the Week is Jon Banik, chairman for 17 years of the Laurel MountainsFriends of NRA! NRA Field Representative Kory Enck told us that...
"Always reaching for more, Jon has been an asset in helping to come up with new ideas and methods of fundraising. Jon is a take charge guy; we wouldn't have done as well as we did in 2015 if it weren't for Jon. He has dedicated nearly 20 years to working hard and making a difference for Pennsylvania and the Friends of NRA.
Jon has been involved with the Youth Hunter Education Challenge every year and feels very strongly about the program. In Jon's words, 'Nothing pushed me more into the NRA Foundation than YHEC. No one can volunteer to work with the participants, coaches, parents, staff, and other volunteers and not come away with an amazing experience that propels you forwards.'
Always in favor of the future of shooting sports, Jon has helped to lead other volunteers and keep them on track. I'm very proud to work with him - he is an asset to the committee every year."
Thank you for your service Jon!
