One night at a social event an archer mentioned the North Carolina Archery Association and I thought it sounded neat. Since I am a great lover of North Carolina, I thought it would be interesting to see how we could grow the archery world here.

I am now the Treasurer of the North Carolina Archery Association and when I was elected to the board I found out about a program that teaches archery to middle and high school classes. We have volunteer instructors from around the state who range from first-year students to veteran archers.

We now have teams called the Wildcatters and Crockeaters in the schools I work in. These students are the ones who get to practice archery on a weekly basis. These students love to come and practice as much as possible.
