Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA and founders of the MidwayUSA Foundation (pictured in the photo, center, between TJ and Mandy Lawhon, co-chairs of the Award ceremony), recently received the Outdoor Legacy Award at the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation Outdoor Hall of Fame. Each year the Foundation hosts the banquet to recognize those who have been instrumental in expanding the use and enjoyment of the outdoors and broadening conservation education and recreation.
Established in 1982, the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation is a non-profit organization composed of men and women who are passionate about promoting hunting, fishing, and conservation education, and committed to supporting the mission of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
“The Potterfield's dedication to changing the future of shooting sports has made such an incredible impact on the lives of thousands of young people not only in Arkansas, but across the nation,” said Deke Whitbeck, President, Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation. “We are honored to recognize them for their tireless support.”
Both country kids from Missouri, Larry and Brenda Potterfield turned their passion for shooting sports into a career by opening a small gun shop in 1977 that would eventually become MidwayUSA (www.midwayusa.com). They instilled family values like honesty, integrity and respect for others into the business, and strive to maintain this culture with each Employee added to their growing team. For over 45 years, MidwayUSA has offered JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING® for Shooting, Reloading, Gunsmithing and Hunting with an unyielding focus on Customer Satisfaction.
