The following 4-H Youth Development articles printed in the 2020 Fall edition of the Oldham County Extension Newsletter.

Andrew Myers Selected as Shooting Sports Ambassador

Oldham County 4-H is pleased to announce that Andrew Myers has been selected to be a 4-H Shooting Sports Ambassador for 2020-2021. As an Ambassador, Andrew will have the opportunity to practice and develop his leadership skills as well as help promote the 4-H Shooting Sports Program throughout the state.

Andrew is a six-year member of the Oldham County 4-H Shooting Sports Program. A certified Teen Instructor for .22 pistol and .22 rifle, Andrew participates in all of the shooting sports disciplines: archery, pistol, rifle, and trap. He is a very accomplished member of our program. At the 2019 Kentucky 4-H State Shoot, Andrew was a member of the first place .22 pistol team and placed third in the individual competition. He was also a member of the 2nd Place Team in the .22 Sport Rifle division.

We know that Andrew will be a great ambassador because of this statement in his 4-H Achievement Application: “I love to talk about the 4-H Shooting Sports program and how it develops today’s youth in a safe environment.”
