About the Trey Spencer Memorial Scholarships

Roger “Trey” Spencer, son of Roger “Buzz” and Debbie Spencer, was born and raised in Logansport, Indiana, along with his sister Marla. Trey was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing, as well as shooting 3-D archery. Trey worked alongside his dad to see that the S3DA program finally came to fruition in his local school, even though he had already moved on to college. Trey loved being able to travel with his dad and was proud to be part of the ASA Advisory Staff and family during the 2015 season. 

Trey died tragically at 20 years of age on August 31, 2015, due to injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident while traveling home from college. The Trey Spencer Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2016. The mission of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance to deserving individuals enrolling in undergraduate studies in community colleges, colleges or universities who are active in both S3DA and ASA.

S3DA Past and Present

Started in December 2012 by the Scholastic Archery Association, S3DA has grown exponentially as a next step program to follow introductory programs offered as part of 4-H or the National Archery in Schools Program. S3DA addresses the need for a program to bridge beginning target archery experience and more advanced activities such as 3-D shooting and bowhunting. The program currently operates across the United States with hundreds of certified coaches serving thousands of young archers, grades 3-12.
