    I admire Kim, as well, Nancy Jo. What a superb role model for women in the shooting sports. Just exudes class, positive energy. We are fortunate, as a country, to have Kim as one of our representatives.

    Outstanding!! I REALLY love Kim. I will never forget my very first SHOT Show in Orlando, FL, I stopped Kim in the hall to ask her a few questions about some of her favorite gear. Kim took the time out of her busy schedule to talk with me…a newbie on the block in the media realm. She was so kind to do that and such a joy to talk to. She was being pulled by one arm by her manager or the person keeping her on schedule for the show…and she was steady carrying on a conversation without missing a beat. That meant so much to me. What an encouragement she is to other women and an OUTSTANDING athlete. Congratulations to you Kim on this award/recognition–it could not have gone to a more deserving person.
