Shooting Club President Ryan Stanford
alongside university mentor Dr. Richard Libby accepted a check from Luke Scott,
of the Tampa Bay Rays, on Wednesday, February 13. Mr. Scott's donation to the
club marks the charter gift to the club's endowment fund with an aim to reach
$100,000 by the end of the 4-year campaign.
Gathered at the President's House, shooting
club community members joined in welcoming and thanking Mr. Scott for his
generous donation to the club's endowment. In attendance was Richard
George-Stetson University Trustee, Dr. Richard Libby-Shooting Club Mentor,
Michael Davis- Firearm Safety Instructor, Robert Matusick-Chief of Campus
Public Safety, Jeff Altier- Director of Athletics, Pete Dunn-Head Baseball
Coach, and Ryan Stanford along with other members of the shooting club. Mr.
Scott, an avid shooter, was happy to help the club jumpstart its efforts
towards the creation of an endowment. He is also no outsider to shooting and
enjoys hunting as well. Mr. Scott was joined by longtime friend and local
community member, Terry Williams.
As the spring semester continues, the Shooting
Club continues to generate traction and interest amongst the student body. Part
of its growth has been as a result of the club's work with the county in
appealing for Fridays to be open at the host, facility Volusia County Skeet
& Trap Club. The students' wishes were granted starting with the spring
2013 semester; the club is open for exclusive use of university shooting club
