USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Meet Jan Murray, a non-hunter, retired nurse, small business owner, motor coach travel escort, mother and avid outdoorsperson who enthusiastically supports SCI both on the local and International levels.
When asked how she got involved with SCI, Jan said, “I became interested in our local SCI Chapter, The Michigan Chapter, through my husband’s interest in the organization. I joined him as a member some ten years ago. He was and is an avid hunter, but I never understood the overall principles of hunting until I started going to the annual local SCI fundraisers and the monthly meetings.”
It did not take Jan long to get involved. “Then I started helping with the fundraisers in small ways. I became more and more active over time, especially after I began to realize how important the work of SCI was. As I became aware of the vital role hunting plays in the preservation of wildlife, I found I wanted to help more with the SCI goals as I have always been an animal lover.”
Jan and her husband Lee have been an integral part in helping their local chapter of SCI. “I have seen our Michigan Chapter grow in numbers and quality over the years. This is largely through involvement of our local members in Safari Club International’s educational programs.”
Jan looks forward to attending the annual SCI Convention each year and touching base with old friends and making new ones. “As I began attending the amazing SCI Conventions in Reno and then in Las Vegas, I learned more and more facets of SCI’s work around the United States and the world with animal conservation, humanitarianism and hunting preservation issues. I also got involved on the international level, serving as a volunteer for three years
