“It’s an honor to accept this award from the NRA–the foremost guardian of our right to keep and bear arms,” said Potterfield. “I’m humbled to be recognized for my efforts toward making sure America’s shooting sports traditions live on through increased involvement by women and future generations.”
Susan LaPierre, co-chair of the NRA’s Women’s Leadership Forum, said, Potterfield is the personification of the legacy of Sybil Ludington’s sacrifice for freedom. “From helping coordinate the expansion of gun rights in her home state, to her national involvement with the WLF in getting more women involved in the shooting sports industry, Brenda’s dedication to the protection of the Second Amendment has been unwavering.”
