PLEASANT GROVE, UT – The Utah Scholastic Clay Target Program (UTYESS) was awarded a $3,000 in a grant from the Topeka based Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, Inc. This money will be used to offset some of the fundraising costs for the Utah Scholastic Clay Target Program. This programs goal is to introduce youth shotgun shooting sports to as many of Utah's youth as possible, helping them use sports to develop and grow, and to be educated in gun safety and the proper handling of firearms.
Justin Corbet was a young man, whose life was tragically cut short, who truly loved the great outdoors and shooting sports. The Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation, a 501 (c )(3) corporation, is dedicated to his memory and is committed to providing leadership, support and financial assistance to qualified programs and individuals dedicated to providing family oriented hunting, shooting and educational activities to youth, women and persons with disabilities. Over 1,400 young people will benefit from our assistance this year.
The Justin Corbet Memorial Shooting Sports Foundation was established in late 2005 by family friends and associates who share Justin’s love of the out-of-doors and a willingness to help others with the experience. To date, the Foundation has awarded close to $185,000 to qualified organizations.
