Colton Frasier

District 4 - Anderson County

Hi I'm Colton Frasier from Anderson County District 4. My 4-H career started when I was 9 in 4th grade with my agent coming to school and introducing 4-H to us as a class. That year I went to camp and took 3 different shooting sports classes trap, rifle, and archery. That next year, I joined shooting sports in just archery at the time. Over the years I have joined 2 other disciplines. I attended shooting sports camp, and I am now a certified teen coach in trap. The reason I am a shooting sports ambassador is because I want other kids at a young age to hopefully grow in their abilities as a competitor and begin to love this program as much as I do today.
