Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame Seeks Nominations
The Board of Directors of the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame is soliciting nominations until August 15 for the 2017 induction.
The Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame is housed in Asa Howard Bean Hall, previously Carnegie Library, at Judson College in Marion, Alabama, and has honored the accomplishments of Alabama women since its first induction program in 1971. Outstanding women such as Helen Adams Keller, Lurleen Burns Wallace, Julia Strudwick Tutwiler, Amelia Gayle Gorgas and Tallulah Bankhead have been inducted. With the induction of Sarah Haynsworth Gayle and Anne Mae Beddow in March 2016, eighty-eight women have been honored by membership in the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame.
The Board invites nominations of distinguished women of Alabama who have influenced the lives of the fellow citizens and who have made significant contributions through their personal or professional lives on a state, national, or international level. Only those who have been deceased for two years or longer may be considered. From those nominated by the general public, the Board may choose up to two for installation each year.
Nomination forms may be downloaded from the organization’s web site at www.awhf.org. For more information or to request a nomination form, contact Bill Mathews, Executive Secretary, Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (334) 683-5167.
