Ky White to Serve as Missouri S3DA State Conservation Coordinator

Scholastic 3-D Archery is pleased to announce Ky White as the NEW Missouri S3DA State Conservation Coordinator. Ky is very excited about the opportunity to build the Missouri S3DA Conservation program alongside the competition side of the organization. Ky and his wife Jayne will collaborate to expand the membership base within the Missouri program and provide conservation education and outdoor related activities to youth and their families.

Ky and his wife Jayne reside in rural Northwest Missouri with their three children (Ryker, Ruger, and Raelynn). Ky started in archery as a youth 4-H member himself and has enjoyed the sport since then. He is interested in all aspects of the outdoors including fishing, trapping and just exploring the great outdoors wherever he is. Ky wants to see children excel in archery while also instilling in them respect, responsibility and conservation stewardship. He feels sharing his passion for the outdoors beyond his family will provide meaningful opportunities for more young people to connect with nature, develop valuable skills, and become lifelong stewards of conservation.

White said, “After learning more about the S3DA Conservation program and the opportunities it would provide to the youth of Missouri as well as supporting the overall Missouri S3DA program it was a no-brainer. The unwavering focus on youth that is seen throughout the S3DA program is what piqued my interest to get more involved. Children not only learn to shoot a bow, but they also gain confidence, resilience, and a deeper appreciation for the outdoors and sport of hunting. It is my personal goal to provide increased recognition and story-telling posts of our youths and adults within the Missouri S3DA program, so that we can gain interest and drive involvement in conservation activities.”

Ky plans to organize and share educational opportunities on the importance of conservation at Missouri S3DA events. He would like to provide educational campaigns to raise awareness about the importance of conservation and the impact of human activities on the environment in addition to creating additional opportunities for youth to have hands-on learning at their home base with the local team they participate with. These may include hands-on projects where youth can plant trees, monitor wildlife, and build habitats to begin to understand the basics of conservation. He said it was extremely important for existing teams to have educational materials to be able to discuss and incorporate topics such as wildlife habitat management, outdoor ethics, and sustainable hunting practices. He plans to establish partnerships with local conservation organizations and agencies to get materials and provide additional support for youth-led conservation initiatives. Partnering with local groups and agencies will also allow for additional opportunities for the youth as well.
