Scholastic 3-D Archery is proud to announce Matthew Green as the South Carolina S3DA State Conservation Outreach Coordinator. Matthew will work alongside South Carolina State Coordinator, Sheila Tadlock to provide S3DA clubs and teams across the state with archery, hunting, and conservation-related activities. Matthew stated, “I really enjoy being in the outdoors and teaching children about archery and hunting. I have been blessed with the possibility to help change children’s lives. I envision a bright future for SC S3DA, and everyone involved with the program.”
Matthew Green was born and raised in Gray Court, South Carolina. Since childhood, he has always been interested in archery and one day he bought a bow from the local archery shop and got started. After some practice, Matthew really got into bowhunting. While he did not harvest a deer the entire season, he was successful the following season. He stated, “When you really start to understand the process, it makes your opportunities better.”
Matthew met his wife, Melissa, and moved to Greenwood, South Carolina, where they still reside with their three daughters, Brianna, Madison, and Morgan. Matthew and his family are loyal customers of the local archery pro shop, Hunters Headquarters. Employee Greg Hughes has been a mentor to Matthew’s daughter, Morgan, and has always helped provide the right archery equipment to fit their needs. South Carolina S3DA State Coordinator, Sheila Tadlock was in the pro shop discussing the S3DA program when Matthew Green and his family met her and were intrigued to learn more. Matthew followed up and went through the S3DA Basic Archery Instructor Course and became an S3DA coach for Sherwood Forest Archery.
Matthew intends to reach out to organizations across South Carolina and bring more awareness to the South Carolina S3DA program. Matthew will be hosting various conservation-related activities such as scavenger hunts, quizzes, and archery challenges at some of the regional and state events for the 2020-21 competition season.
