Williamsburg, KY – Scholastic 3-D Archery welcomes Quentin R. Young as the newest member of the S3DA Board of Directors. Quentin graduated from the University of the Cumberlands with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. He continued his education and received his MBA (Master of Business Administration), and Master of Information Systems Security. Quentin currently serves as the Vice President for Finance/CFO at the University of the Cumberlands. Prior to his employment with the University, he held positions in the finance, banking and private business sectors. Quentin has held a CPA license in the Commonwealth of Kentucky since 2014.
The National Archery in the Schools program first piqued Quentin’s interest into the archery world. Quentin stated that Jennie Richardson (S3DA Executive Director) was a major contributor to his archery involvement and success. Quentin said that after competing in his first NASP tournament, he was hooked from there on. He began competing in national tournaments with his own compound set-up. His involvement with competitive archery easily transitioned to a love for bowhunting. Young stated, “There is just something special about adoring God’s creation in a tree stand during the fall of the year as the leaves begin to change colors.”
Quentin learned about S3DA through Richardson. Since learning about the program, Quentin has continued to notice the organization’s activity and growth across the country. Quentin was very excited when he received the invitation to be a member on the S3DA Board of Directors.
Quentin states, “I wanted to serve and give back to an industry that truly made a difference in my life. I would not be where I am today without the life lessons learned through archery. I believe in the work and opportunities that S3DA is creating for the youth of today. I believe we will continue to see phenomenal growth over the next few years. With hard work and vision of its leadership team, continued great success is certainly on the horizon.”

S3DA addresses the need for a program to bridge beginning target archery experience and more advanced activities such as 3-D shooting and bowhunting. The program currently operates across the United States with hundreds of certified coaches serving
