(AmmoLand.com) WEST POINT, MS – Bill Lewis of Omaha, Neb., has been named the first recipient of the Mossy Oak ProStaffer of the Year award.
The ProStaffer of the Year program was established in 2016 to recognize Mossy Oak ProStaffers in each of the 24 regions they represent. With a ProStaff of over 1,000 men and women, Tim Anderson, Director of ProStaff for Mossy Oak, wanted to recognize the individuals that really represent Mossy Oak and the outdoors lifestyle well in their region.
“Over the last eight years, members of the Mossy Oak ProStaff team have worked extremely hard to represent Mossy Oak in a wide variety of outdoors events and given their time to help charitable organizations,” said Anderson. “They’ve spent thousands of hours volunteering in their communities to represent the values of Mossy Oak. As a company, Mossy Oak wanted to recognize some of the hard work that these men and women have put in to help grow the Mossy Oak family and the values of Mossy Oak.”
Lewis will receive a big prize package with a lot of Mossy Oak gear, and he and his regional manager D.J. Randolph will go on an all-expense-paid hunting trip with the Mossy Oak crew. The 24 who were nominated as the best in their groups also were given prizes to show Mossy Oak’s appreciation for the outstanding jobs they had done for Mossy Oak in 2016.
“One of the main reasons I nominated Bill is that he attends, speaks at and represents Mossy Oak at many more events than we ask our Mossy Oak pros attend,” said Randolph. “Bill goes above and beyond what’s expected of a ProStaffer. His passion for archery, both competing and instructing, his community involvement and support at retail and promotional events has made him a valuable part of the Mossy Oak team.”
“I didn’t realize what all I had done for Mossy Oak in 2016 until I had to list it out,” said Lewis. “All I remembered was that I was going to the events and spending my days helping people learn about and enjoy the outdoors, representing Mossy Oak and having a great time.”
Lewis and his wife Angela are both graduates of Mississippi State University and have 4 children. To learn more about Lewis, visit http://www.mossyoak.com/our-obsession/blogs/prostaff/2017/01/09/bill-lewis-mossy-oak-prostaffer-of-the-year.
