Amie Skipper has been a lead volunteer for Lincoln parish since 2009. She started as an archery volunteer for the Shooting Sports program and now coaches archery, shotgun, rifle, and hunting skills. Amy developed a binder system for her fellow coaches, helped with local in-person and regional online Shooting Sports registration, and has organized kick-off meetings and banquets. She created and presented the parish 4-H Shooting Sports recruiting video for club meetings in 2016-2018, has promoted the Shooting Sports program at Whitetail Unlimited and NRA banquets since 2015, and has volunteered at the regional shoot for 10 years and state shoot for 8 years. In addition to Shooting Sports, she recruits youth for 4-H Jr. Leaders. Thanks to her, youth participation and parent/volunteer involvement increases yearly. Amie attends service-learning training, coordinates service-learning projects, conducts club meetings, and transports youth to events at the parish, regional, and state level. In 2017, Amie applied for and received a Claiborne Electric Grant to purchase a cargo trailer, livestock scales, and skeet throwers for the parish. She helped organize the state 4-H “Shoot 4 Youth” fundraiser in 2019 and still contributes her time. This fundraiser generates about $52,000 annually, distributed among 11 parishes. Amie has been a lead volunteer for Achievement Day, volunteered for the cooking contest, transported youth to Ag Magic, and helped with Jr. Leader Club officer training. She has coordinated the “Coins for Cancer” service-learning project, organized and secured donations for Jr. Leader Parent Fun Night, and trained youth and parents for the 4-H State Scholarship and State Records. Amie is the heart of 4-H in her parish and was recognized for her service by receiving the 2013 and 2015 Lincoln Parish Friend of 4-H Award; Achievement Day 2006 Hospitality Award; and acknowledgements in print and social media. Amie was appointed board member for Lincoln Friends of NRA in 2016.
