Joyce Hale named Dragon Slayer, but you knew that!

National Sierra Club newsletter congratulates Joyce Hale of Fayetteville for earning the Brownie Ledbetter 'Dragon-slayer award.'

Kudos to Arkansas Chapter volunteer leader Joyce Hale, who on June 23 received the Brownie Ledbetter Dragon Slayer Awardfrom the Arkansas Citizens First Congress and the Arkansas Public Policy Institute. Hale has championed a range of issues including clean water and fair elections with the Sierra Club, the League of Women Voters, and other groups. Says the Arkansas Public Policy Panel: ["Joyce] was one of the first, and most forceful, in the state to raise concerns about the impacts of natural gas fracking on water quality and landowners."
Quick blog search turns up a few of Joyce Hale's efforts in recent years to refresh your memory:
