Kids in Action - October 2018

Preston Launius, Sesser
Preston was the 2018 winner of the Illinois Conservation Foundation’s Conservation Achievement Scholarship. He is an avid outdoors enthusiast, who enjoys fishing and hunting.  He is also a longtime member of the Sesser-Valier High School Outdoorsmen Club.  One of the club’s primary events each November is joining the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers in hosting a special deer hunt at Rend Lake for people with disabilities. Club members construct hunting blinds prior to the hunt and assist participating individuals during the three-day hunt.
