Nominations are Open for the 2018 Texas Women’s Hall of Fame
The Texas Governor’s Commission for Women announced last week that it is now accepting nominations for the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame.
“The Texas Women’s Hall of Fame recognizes and celebrates Texas women not only for their individual achievements, but also for their contributions to the strength of the Lone Star State. These extraordinary women serve as examples and role models for all Texans as they continue to inspire the next generation of young women who will go on to lead in fields such as business, education, philanthropy, public service and the arts and sciences. I look forward to this year’s class of nominees and another chance to recognize all the incredible accomplishments of Texas women.” – Governor Greg Abbott
