Champion Range and Target, makers of interactive and challenging target systems, announced that it has awarded the 2018 Tom Knapp Memorial Scholarships. Nicholas Bohannon of Tekamah, Nebraska and Ryli Jetton of Ashland, Missouri were chosen as the award recipients and honored at the recent National 4-H Shooting Sports Championships in Nebraska.
The scholarship program was created to honor legendary exhibition shooter Tom Knapp, who passed away in April 2013. Champion Range and Target teamed with the National 4-H Shooting Sports Committee to create the Tom Knapp Memorial Scholarship. Tom Knapp was a long time ambassador for both Champion and Federal Ammunition, and was included in licensed products from Champion. With the support of Knapp’s wife, Colleen, Champion extended his licensed products program to fund an endowed scholarship that awards $2,500 each to two National 4-H Ambassadors per year.
