On Saturday March 18, 2017, Kendall Rhodes received an award from the Academics, Integrity and Marksmanship (AIM) Program, the official youth program of the Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA). The award was for earning first place in the 2016 Junior Class Trapshooting Competition (age 15-17) for the Virginia AIM/ATA target year. Trapshooting is one of the three major disciplines of competitive clay pigeon shooting (shooting shotguns at clay targets).
In the 2016 season, Kendall shot in AIM/ATA approved matches at the NVGC and The Virginia Trapshooting Association (VTA) Homegrounds, Winchester Gun Club, Stephenson, VA. Her NVGC mentors were Jon Yagla and Richard Dodson, longtime ATA Competition Shooters. Kendall is currently working part time and attending Germanna Community College.
