Womack, of Modesto, California, is a tireless advocate of hunting, the shooting sports and firearms safety. In 2017 she conducted a total of 53 traditional and online classes that resulted in the certification of 1,227 students. Her efforts were similar in 2016, when she taught 52 classes that certified 1,145 students.

Womack is also an avid big-game hunter and member of the National Rifle Association, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Tuolumne County Sportsmen, which she has assisted with conservation projects including placing salt blocks on winter deer ranges.

“Marsha’s commitment to hunter education and her passion for hunting, shooting and firearms safety are a shining example of the many dedicated volunteers nationwide who help ensure the future of our hunting heritage,” said Jon Zinnel from Federal ’s Education Outreach department. “Marsha proudly advertises her classes with a decal on the side of her vehicle. She encourages students throughout the teaching process and keeps in touch with many for years afterward.”
