Two Eagle Scouts have been named the 2017-2018 NRA Youth Ambassadors, representing the NRA/BSA Brownell Youth Ambassador program—one of the many ways scouting strengthens the shooting sports community.
James Frasier Jr. from Queen Creek, Ariz., and Kaleb Rulon from Arcadia, Ind., were recently selected to represent the program, according to a feature at scoutingmagazine.org. The two will attend the SHOT Show and the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, and will write articles and blog posts for the NRA.
“My goal is to help as many youth as possible to put down their phones, computers and video games and go outside and see and experience the world,” Frazier said. Rulon has similar aspirations: “I know that I am the best person to bridge the gap between the NRA and the BSA because of my ability to relate to both groups and make connections between them,” he said.
