Ray is a 20-year leader and project leader in Shooting Sports. He became involved in the program when his oldest son joined and began volunteering with Shooting Sports. He enjoys watching the youth realize what they can accomplish when given the opportunity. Ray also loves the challenge of trying to make the program even better. Outside of 4-H Ray is involved in his church bible study group, hunting, mountain biking and wind surfing. The most important aspect of being a leader for him is recognizing the best outcomes come from working together, even if opinions are different.
