An area youth attended the National 4-H Shooting Sports Ambassador Training at Texas A&M in Kingsville, Texas.
Kaci Persell was one of 30 participants from 15 states who learned about public speaking, leadership skills, and etiquette. The participants met with industry representatives and toured King Ranch.
A maximum of two from each state were selected for the training based on an application and essay process. Kyle Gann was the other 4-H member from Missouri selected and attending the training.
Persell and Gann are now prepared to serve as National Shooting Sports Ambassadors and will assist at the 4-H National Shooting Sports Competition in June 2020.
