On behalf of the Scholastic Pistol Program / Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation, we are saddened to announce the death of longtime SSSF supporter Joe Meis. Joe was on his way to the SPP Nationals in Sparta, IL on July 19 and was involved in an automobile accident.
Joe was one of the founding coaches of the Arnold Junior Shooters (Missouri) SPP and SCTP teams. He also assisted many other teams in the area.
“Joe was greatly respected in the Eastern Missouri/Western Illinois shooting family and was responsible for several generations of shooters,” said Scott Moore, SPP Director. “We are very grateful for all he gave to youth shooting sports. He will be missed.”
