My name is Debbie Ferrell.
Earlier this year, I attended a TPWD Hunter Education class with my son Cody. As a parent, I feel if a child is going to take Hunter Education, that at least one parent should attend with their child, that it is important that parents fully understand what their children are being taught when it comes to firearms and hunting safety. At the completion of the class, I was invited to obtain my own certification to become a Hunter Education volunteer instructor. I accepted the invitation and earned my certification. It is a way in which I can pay forward to today’s generations, the time and effort that my scouting and 4-H leaders so generously gave to me.
I grew up in a family of hunters, and spent my years growing up hunting, fishing, and camping with my parents and assorted aunts and uncles. Those individuals made sure that they passed on the heritage, tradition, and importance of hunting, fishing, and all things outdoors to my younger brother and myself.
I am honored to have been given the opportunity to continue the legacy that was given to me, and to be given the opportunity to continue to pass the heritage and traditions that I was taught on to the next generations. And through those next generations to ascertain the heritage and traditions continue for many generations yet to come.
The opportunity to serve as secretary is a chance to provide the support network necessary to help others that feel the same way I do about passing on heritage and tradition.
I look forward to the opportunity to help others.
