University Shooting Team Benefits From NRA Foundation Grant

posted on September 23, 2017

The University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana Iron Horse Shooting Team will be headed to the Arkansas State Championship Shoot and National Championship Shoot next spring, courtesy of the National Rifle Association. TXK Today reports that The NRA Foundation presented the team with a grant in the amount of $3,629 this week.

“Without the funding provided by the NRA, we would not be able to offer this opportunity to our students,” said Jill Bobo, University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana Foundation Executive Director. The shooting team competes each year in the Arkansas State Shoot and in the National Championship Shoot in San Antonio, Texas.

The grant was made possible through a local Friends of NRA chapter.

“We are very excited to be able to help our local college’s shooting team and pleased that the NRA is investing in our community,” added Cyril Stewart, vice chairman of the Piney Woods Friends of the NRA Chapter #AR28.
