On a personal level, perhaps the most exciting
thing we were able to do in 2020 was to launch
a scholarship program to youth anglers. This scholarship program yielded 5 scholarships of $1000.00 each to youth anglers for trade school, college, and furthering education. We received 247 applicants and all had to answer if they knew about 811 and why it was important. Our 5 partners; Georgia 811, Ohio 811, Renegade Marine, Alabama 811, and One Call Concepts Locating Services created opportunity for youth anglers to earn these scholarships and invest in our youth.”
Another 2020 success was airing “The Direction”
on Discovery Channel and MOTV. “Bringing new distribution adds to our reach for our stakeholders, and to see us airing on Discovery on Saturday mornings was an exciting achievement,” Stowe says. You will see “The Direction” airing later in 2021 on Discovery Channel along with viewing access on the Mossy Oak Go app.
