Mark Karns

15-Year Leader

Mark is a 15-year leader and a project leader in Shooting Sports.  He got his start in 4-H as a member himself and when his own kids were old enough enrolling them in the program.  Mark has since become actively involved in Shooting Sports as a Key Leader and still serves even though his kids have aged out of the program.  He stays motivated by being able to give back to an organization that impacted him greatly and serving as a mentor to the youth. 

Outside of 4-H Mark loves model railroading, woodworking, and skiing.  The most important aspect of being a leader to him is teaching youth a skill and then seeing them apply that skill in a positive way.
