The Kinkaid School Sporting Clays Benefit
Friday, April 21, 2017
Greater Houston Gun Club
Now in its 15th year, the sporting clays benefit is held every spring and alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends are welcome to register and shoot in the tournament. Hosted by the event steering committee, the shoot takes place at a local shooting range and typically begins with a noon lunch and games to be followed by the tournament. Afterward, participants and volunteers enjoy snacks and beverages at the awards ceremony.
Proceeds from the Sporting Clays Benefit will go toward a new initiative, a Teaching Internship Program, akin to the “minor league” system in baseball. The Internship will provide a one-year training and mentored experience for high-character, high-potential teachers, and coaches, who have little to no teaching experience when they are hired into our program, e.g. recent college graduates or those looking for a change in career. The funds will be dedicated to the Barbara Cooney Teaching Internship Endowment named for a highly admired retired teacher of sixth grade ancient history.
