The Garrett County Commission for Women is seeking your recommendation of an outstanding Garrett County woman for induction into the Garrett County Women’s Hall of Fame. Nominees should be women who have made outstanding contributions to Garrett County and are role models for tomorrow’s female leaders.
The Garrett County Women’s Hall of Fame was established in 1995 through the efforts of the Garrett County Commission for Women. Its purpose is to honor local women who have made substantial or outstanding contributions to the economic, political, and cultural life of Garrett County.
Up to three women are inducted each year. Both historical and contemporary women are eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame. These women represent the past, present and future vision of Garrett County.
GCCW invites organizations and individuals to nominate women for the Hall of Fame. Under the guidance of the GCCW, a selection committee will review the nominations and make recommendations to the Commission. After final review and approval, the GCCW will announce the inductees who will be recognized for their contributions during a brunch and ceremony in their honor on Saturday, May 2nd at Dutch’s at Silver Tree.
Specific criteria include: 1) The contribution must extend to the community level; 2) The contribution may be in a particular discipline or to Garrett County in general; and 3) Nominees must be Garrett County residents and must have resided in the county for at least 10 years, or if deceased, nominees must have resided in the county for a substantial portion of their lives.
Nomination packets are available on the Commission’s website at http://gccw.info/hall-of-fame/ . Submissions must be postmarked by March 30, 2020.
