FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ANOKA, MN – Feb. 10, 2014 – The shooting sports lost a tremendous ambassador, teacher and friend in 2013, with the passing of exhibition shooter Tom Knapp. His combination of shooting skills and stage presence inspired an entire generation of new shooters. To honor his memory and continue his legacy of stewardship, Champion® Traps and Targets and Federal Premium® Ammunition have teamed to create the 2014 Tom Knapp Memorial Scholarship.
For more than a decade, Knapp represented these brands around the world at live exhibitions, on television and at countless consumer and trade shows. With the support of his wife, Colleen, Champion extended Knapp’s licensed products program to fund a scholarship that will award $5,000 to one male and one female college-bound student. The two scholarship winners will be chosen from applicants in the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League, and will receive their awards at the League Championships in June 2014.
