Two Texas County 4-H Shooting Sports members recently signed scholarship paperwork to shoot for college shotgun teams.
Kaitlyn Davis will shoot for Hannibal-LaGrange University in Hannibal. A home-schooled student from Summersville, Davis said she enjoys 4-H because she gets to visit with her friends, meet new people and she enjoys the competitiveness of shooting sports. She will major in criminal justice.
A 2019 graduate of Cabool High School, James Scott, will join the shotgun squad at Missouri Valley College in Marshall. Scott said 4-H shooting sports was good to him because he liked watching himself improve and getting to be around other people with the ambition to continuously get better. He will also major in criminal justice.
“This is a great example of what 4-H can do!” said Janice Weddle, University of Missouri Extension engagement specialist in youth development for Texas, Wright and Webster counties. “I am so proud and so is the rest of the MU Extension family. Congratulations to Kaitlyn and James; they are off to do great things!”
