Ms. Hlebinsky has made a huge impact on the world of firearms history and communications in a very short time. Her public outreach efforts have included writing for both scholarly and popular publications, expanding social media and appearing on numerous broadcast programs as a content expert on historic firearms
Through the generous efforts of Ms. Hlebinsky, a number of priceless Winchester firearms have been displayed in the Winchester Repeating Arms boots at the SHOT Show and the NRA Show. These historic firearms have included General George Patton’s M1 Garand, Buffalo Bill’s personal Model 1873 rifle and Annie Oakley’s personal Model 1892 rifle.
We at Winchester Repeating Arms wish to add our congratulations to Ms. Hlebinsky for an award so richly deserved.
