“Send Your Teacher to School” with the Help of SCI Foundation and Bass Pro Shops
Tucson, Arizona – Safari Club International Foundation (SCIF) has partnered with Bass Pro Shops to sponsor teachers to attend SCIF’s American Wilderness Leadership School (AWLS) in Jackson Hole, WY to learn more about hunting, fishing and the outdoors.
Attending the Leadership School at the AWLS ranch will help promote positive experiences for teachers and will give them a greater understanding of the outdoors. Each Bass Pro Shop will sponsor one teacher to attend the AWLS Ranch from July 30th to August 6th, 2008.
“SCI Foundation is proud to work with Bass Pro Shops by bringing the teachers of our youth such a hands-on experience at AWLS,” said SCIF President Dennis Anderson. “We hope that they can take some stories and adventures back to the classroom.”
“The AWLS program is something we wish every teacher in America could experience,” stated Bass Pro Shops Manager of Communications and Outdoor Education Larry Whiteley. “SCIF is to be saluted for their commitment and dedication to conservation and education.”
Teacher nominations will be held during May 2008 at all Bass Pro Shops nationwide. Every store will be featuring an AWLS Ranch Video which can be viewed now at www.safariclubfoundation.org/teacher and www.basspro.com/sci . Donations to the program will also be accepted online and at the register in Bass Pro Shops stores.
