Walton Added as New SASP Director of Development

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation is pleased to announce Mr. Kelvin Walton is joining the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) staff as Director of Development. Walton will report to Rick Leach, SASP National Director.

“SASP is excited to have Kelvin join our staff and help grow SASP,” said Leach. “Kelvin’s past business experience as well as serving as both a SASP and a SCTP coach gives him the knowledge to explain both our youth development programs to schools, future athletes, and coaches as he works with them to get more athletes participating in our safe and enjoyable sport.”

After 20 years of full time military and law enforcement service, Kelvin spent the last 8 years as a manager with a global private security company. He will be able to utilize his strong management, leadership and organizational skill to help grow SASP. Kelvin is pursuing his master’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in non-profits.

Kelvin was a longtime youth baseball coach and started out as a parent volunteer with SCTP and SASP. He is an assistant trap and pistol coach with Ozaukee Scholastic Shooting Sports (WI) and holds current NRA Level 1 Pistol coach, Level 1 Trap coach, and Range Safety Officer certifications. Kelvin has assisted with SASP and Pheasants Forever banquets. He also works with local veterans groups and helped coordinate a fundraising trap shoot for Healing Patriots.

“I am excited to be part of SASP and promoting youth shooting sports,” said Walton. “I look forward to working with existing teams and helping new teams start up.”

Walton’s first day with the SASP will be April 9th and he will be working primarily from his home office in Grafton, WI.

About Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation

The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is 501(c)(3) public charity responsible for all aspects of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) across the United States. SCTP and SASP are youth development programs in which adult coaches and other volunteers use shooting sports to teach and to demonstrate sportsmanship, responsibility, honesty, ethics, integrity, teamwork, and other positive life skills. SCTP was developed as a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) until the SSSF was created in 2007 to operate the SCTP. In 2012, SSSF created the SASP and became the managing foundation of both programs.
