The Museum of the Arkansas Grand Prairie has announced the inductees into this year’s Arkansas Waterfowler Hall of Fame. An induction ceremony will be held September 23 at Chenal Country Club in Little Rock to honor these individuals as well as the 2020 class of inductees.
This year’s inductees are as follows:
- W.R. “Witt” Stephens, Jr., who is a passionate land manager involved in countless conservation-related efforts that benefit Arkansas wildlife and sportsmen.
- Dr. Harold V. Glenn, Thad McCollum, and Verne Tindall who created what is now known as the World’s Championship Duck Calling Contest.
