Libbie Lee Ansell of Galveston, Texas
As the granddaughter of former DU and DUMAC president Johnny Walker, Libbie Lee Ansell is living proof that good things come in small packages. At just three days old, she became a Junior Legacy Greenwing and one of DU's youngest supporters. Now, 12 years later, this energetic, outdoor-loving girl is fast becoming a seasoned waterfowl hunter and conservationist, enthusiastically embracing her family's longstanding traditions.
"When I was 10 years old, I shot my first duck—a mallard drake," Libby Lee says. "It was very rewarding. I can't wait to hunt again this year."
Libbie Lee is well known at Galveston DU banquets. She's been helping her father, Bill Ansell, with dinners since she was a small child. She's done everything from helping with pre-event planning to setting up tables. "I'm glad I can help," she says. "I love the outdoors and want to make the world a better place."
