Energy Workforce & Technology Council hosted its 4th Annual Shoot for the Stars Marksmanship Tournament on November 8. Participants gathered at Athena Gun Club for a half day of networking and competition for the event which supports energy education initiatives.

Energy Workforce Board Member, Scott Livingston, President – Intervention & Stimulation Equipment, NOV Completion & Production Solutions, kicked off the marksmanship tournament by welcoming attendees and thanking the teams entered in the tournament.

“Through Energy Workforce & Technology Council’s outreach, we are educating people across the country on the benefits of U.S. energy – that our sector has the expertise, technology, workforce and innovation to increase our domestic supplies of oil and natural gas while reducing emissions and creating good American jobs. Energy Workforce is working every day to tell that story,” said Livingston.
