Jamie Tennison Memorial Compass Fund

This program is dedicated to teaching the proper use of compasses, awareness and their very own compass during Firearm Safety classes leaving students ready to navigate the woods with a compass. While the story behind the formation of this fund is tragic, Jamie’s family is dedicated to helping educate so all hunters have the knowledge to navigate the woods.
