BATESVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Competitive shooters will gather at the Paul H. “Rocky” Willmuth Shooting Sports Complex on Aug. 15 to honor the memory of Zachary Lillard.
Lillard, a member of the Lyon College Trap Team, died June 6 in a canoeing accident. He had recently completed his freshman year at Lyon and was a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity.
“Kern was one of our best shooters, one of our best friends, someone you were guaranteed to have a good time with, and a true blessing to his family, friends and community. I intend for this to become an annual event in his memory and hope future generations of students may benefit from the scholarship fund in Zach’s name,” said Landon Downing, assistant director of admissions and the team’s coordinator.
