The Johnson County 4-H Shooting Sports program is a project within the 4-H program that teaches youth safe gun use and target shooting fundamentals by certified shooting sports instructors.
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.
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 over $150,000 to qualified organizations.
