On August 18, 2018 the inaugural Bill Yowell Memorial Sporting Clays Tournament, hosted by The Killeen Independent School District Education Foundation, will occur at Yowell Ranch. Mr. Bill Yowell was an esteemed community benefactor for his entire working life. His philanthropy endeared him to this community. His family resides on the 600-acre ranch in the heart of Killeen, TX and they have opened their land to this tournament to honor their family patriarch and support the mission of the Foundation. Yowell Ranch is a working cattle ranch producing organic, grass feed beef, unadulterated by hormones or antibiotics.
