Just a little help from your friends can go a long way. Recently, the NRA Foundation awarded the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana Iron Horse Shooting Sports Club $3,000 in grants to help fund the team’s registration fees for the upcoming Arkansas State Championship Shoot. The competition will take place in the spring and is meant to support the Pulling for Education Trap Shoot.

"The UAHT Foundation is grateful for the support of our local NRA Chapter," said Anna Powell, executive director of the foundation. "Without this local support, many of our students would not have the opportunity to participate in shooting sports. This grant also helps provide many students with the ability to continue their education because it supports the college's Pulling for Education Trap Shoot which provides student scholarships."

Since 1903, the NRA has promoted the shootings sports among American youth by encouraging the establishment of rifle clubs at colleges and universities across the United States. Shooting still is a foundation activity for NRA, with more than a million youth participating in NRA shooting sports events each year. Affiliated programs through the Boy Scouts of America, the American Legion and 4-H carry on these traditions.

The Friends of NRA program in particular fosters community involvement to organize and plan community events for those who enjoy firearms.
