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, Ky.
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 Save-A-Lot grocery store.
