JoAnn Of Arc: Skater Of The Month: October 2011
NWA Roller Derby would like to recognize Octobers’ skater of the month, JoAnn of Arc, for her strength, support, amazing skills, and for all of the encouragement she lends toward the future of our league. JoAnn has been skating with NWA for four years now, she has made MVP more times than anyone can count, Jammer of the Year for 2010, she is captain of the NWA Allstars, and a WFTDA rep for our league.
On top of being an amazing skater, JoAnn juggles going to college full time, teaches children how to create art, and practices her dodging and balancing skills while waiting tables. While being known as a great leader, who is always willing to lend advice and offer training to her fellow derby girls,she is also notoriously known in the underground world as “Glitter Bomb” since everywhere she goes, fairy poofs of glitter sparkle will razzle dazzle all who dare to cross her path.
JoAnn of Arc is a loyal warrior for our league, scoring 20 point jams in the last two minutes of a game to break a tie, she is an amazing skater who devotes her life and her passion to our league and to everyone around her who could use a little extra help. She is kind hearted but strong, serious yet covered in sparkle, she is one of the best skaters on our league, but she is always willing to learn.
For all of these reasons and more, we have nominated JoAnn of Arc as Octobers “Skater of the Month”
