Wayne County High School 2018 graduating senior Breanna Tuggle recently signed with the Campbellsville University Tigers Archery Team, which will provide a partial scholarship added to a performance grant. The coed team is fairly young at the private Christian school located in Campbellsville, Kentucky.
Breanna, the daughter of Roseanna and Nathaniel Tuggle, plans to major in accounting since Math is her strongest subject. The honor roll student has already taken a dual credit Math course through Campbellsville, as well as being MOS Certified (various computer software programs) through Somerset Community College.
“I’m so ready to go to school,” said Breanna, who was involved in FBLA for four years and participated in BETA her freshman and sophomore years at Wayne County High School.
“I like competition, but I don’t care for hunting,” said Breanna. She has been involved in school archery since fifth grade. She started 4-H Archery in seventh grade.
“Breanna is very responsible and is easy to coach,” said Wayne County Archery Coach Forrest Shelton. “She works hard and gets along with everyone. I have known her a long time. She is like another daughter to me. Breanna is always ready to help the other kids, also.”
“I really appreciated my coaches. They’ve helped me along the way,” said Breanna. “My family took me to my practices and bought all my stuff. They’ve supported me at competitions.”
Archery is just a close-knit group, according to Breanna.
Her new college coach appreciates her outgoing personality and her excellent shooting ability. “She will be a good student athlete at Campbellsville, but the priority is to get the best education possible and we will have fun shooting arrows as we go along,” said Head Archery Coach Shawn Canada.
Coach Canada is impressed with Wayne County’s Archery Program and hopes to grow his program as much as possible so he can recruit some more Wayne County students in the future.
Before heading to college, Breanna is working part time at Sav-a-Lot grocery store.
