With $8,000 in hand, Pennsylvania schools can begin to offer area students the chance to learn firearm safety and the fundamentals of how the shooting sports can promote character, responsibility, and self-esteem. The check was presented during the inaugural Pennsylvania Basic Air Riflery Instructor Training in October. The Student Air Rifle (SAR) Program has partnered with the NRA Foundation to offer equipment grants.

“Funds raised locally in Pennsylvania were used to offer two separate grants for SAR. The grants—one for Western Pennsylvania and one for Eastern Pennsylvania—help schools complete their SAR equipment purchases,” said Kory Enck, NRA Foundation Senior Field Representative for Western Pennsylvania.

Such support is vital in helping with the initial costs for developing Pennsylvania SAR schools. “We value our partnership with the NRA Foundation and look forward to expanding SAR in Pennsylvania,” stated Jake Hindman, president and chief executive officer of SAR.

The SAR program is intended to introduce students in grades four through 12 to the lifelong sport of target shooting with the use of positive language, standardized equipment, school aligned units of study and universal whistle commands.
