Meet Faith Pendergrass
A little about myself. My name is Faith Pendergrass, I am 20 years old and a product of a multigenerational Law Enforcement family. I came across BAOH and their wonderful work in 2014 when my life was forever changed. My grandfather Jimmy Pendergrass, a retired
officer for Stockton Police Department who continued to do a background investigation
work for SPD after retirement was killed on his way to work for the department.
Kristen reached out to my family and sent us a blue line flag in honor of him and it
meant everything to us that someone thought of us during our heartbreak. Since that
day, I have been an avid supporter of all the organization does in support of fallen
officers and the families they leave behind. Due to my family's work in Law Enforcement, I developed an interest in the shooting sports world. I began shooting a competitive shotgun at the age of nine, and in 2018 at the age of 17, I made Team USA and earned the honor of representing the United States on both a national and international level! In 2019, I competed in Lonato Italy
and Suhl Germany at World Championship events and was honored to return to the
states with four medals and a championship title. While competitions were put on
hold for a while due to COVID, most recently in October of 2021 I once again got the
opportunity to represent the USA on an international level. I and my teammates traveled to Lima Peru to compete in the Junior World Championships and I was once again honored to return with a Gold medal that I and my female teammates earned together.
My dream is to one day earn a spot on the Olympic team and have the honor of representing the USA on the highest athletic level possible. I am honored to help share the work that BAOH does on a day-to-day basis, and look forward to spreading this organization's work throughout my International travels.
