Stancil named Volunteer Instructor of the Year
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (Nov. 5) – The men and women who volunteer as hunter education instructors for the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission serve as teachers, mentors and coaches. The service they deliver is, quite literally, lifesaving.

On Oct. 26, Bill Stancil of Rocky Mount was honored as the District Three Volunteer Instructor of the Year, during an awards banquet recognizing the hard work and dedication of these instructors. District Three includes Wake, Johnston, Wayne, Wilson, Nash, Edgecombe, Franklin, Warren, Vance, Halifax and Northhampton counties.

First-time hunter license buyers in North Carolina must successfully complete a Hunter Education Course, offered free across the state. More than a gun safety class, the course includes information about hunter ethics and responsibility, conservation and game management, firearms, wildlife identification, survival and first aid, and specialty hunting.

Stancil has been teaching hunter education in the Rocky Mount area since 1991 and has donated some 500 hours of his time to instruction. He also builds awareness for the outdoors, wildlife conservation and hunting safety as a contributing columnist for the Rocky Mount Telegram.

“Bill does an outstanding job teaching hunter education and assisting other instructors in Nash and Edgecombe counties with their classes,” said Travis Casper, District Three Hunter Education Specialist. “He has been instrumental, for the past three years, in conducting a program at a local elementary school on wildlife, the Wildlife Resources Commission and hunting’s role in wildlife management.”

Stancil was presented a muzzleloading rifle in recognition of his contributions to hunter safety and sportsmen throughout the region.
