She will serve as a 4-H National Shooting Sports Ambassador representing Missouri for at least the next two years. The National 4-H Shooting Sports Ambassador Program is designed to promote 4-H and 4-H shooting sports. Youth selected to serve as Ambassadors receive training that will allow them to return to their homes and advocate for the program at the county, regional, and state level. Ambassadors may be asked to support national events as well. Ambassadors provide public relations support at special events such as donor/sponsor functions and also serve as spokespersons for the 4-H shooting sports program, helping to make 4-H and the 4-H shooting sports programs more visible. During the institute the Ambassador’s further develop their skills in leadership, public presentation, citizenship, community service, public relations and team building. Since the institute, she has represented Missouri 4-H at two events at the Missouri State Fair. On Monday, Aug. 14, she and ambassador Michaela Brown accepted the donation of a gun from FCS Finanacial. On Thursday, Aug. 18, she and ambassador Anna Threatt assisted during the Governor's ham breakfast. The ambassadors also met Gov. Jay Nixon, at left, and Sen. Roy Blunt.
