Wednesday, February 27, 2008
Volunteer Hunter Education instructor, Albert Lee was recently recognized for 50 years of service to the youth of Montana. Mr. Lee has participated in a hunter education class every year for the last 50 years for young folks in training for their first licensed hunting season.
Mr. Lee received a plaque, a hat with “Hall of Fame” logo and congratulations. Albert is the first person to reach the 50-year milestone in Region 7, Fish, Wildlife and Parks. A “Hall of Fame” plaque recognizing this duration of service is on display in the lobby of the FWP regional office in Miles City.
The hunter and bowhunter education programs in Montana provide the training to aspiring hunters so they can qualify to purchase their first hunting license. It provides the guidance and training for youthful hunters to conduct themselves in safe, courteous and ethical manner while preserving the Montana hunting heritage.
Mr. Lee has volunteered time and effort for half a century to the young hunters in Rosebud County. This is a rare and important accomplishment of faithful and continuous giving to others.
