Governor Scott chose the three women from a list of 10 distinguished nominees selected by the Florida Commission on the Status of Women for making significant contributions to the improvement of life for women and all citizens of Florida. Governor Scott said, “For their significant contributions to the state of Florida, I am pleased to induct three female leaders into the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame. The work of these three women to improve education, provide health treatment, create jobs and help those less fortunate has made our state a better place to live and is a reason why Florida is known for our spirit of innovation.”
Governor Scott will conduct the induction ceremony for the Hall of Fame on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. in the Capitol Courtyard in Tallahassee. The induction ceremony is open to the public. All persons attending the ceremony are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the event.
