Women’s hall of fame seeking nominations


XENIA — The Greene County Women’s Hall of Fame committee is accepting nominations of outstanding Greene County women for induction into the hall of fame in 2022.

The public is encouraged to submit nominations for Greene County women, living or deceased, who deserve recognition for contributions they have made in their home county. Nominees must be either native-born Greene Countians or currently residing in the county with at least a 10-year residency. Nominations are being accepted through June 30.

The 41st Annual Recognition Day event is planned for Saturday, Sept. 24 at Walnut Grove Country Club, following public health guidelines in effect at that time. The Women’s Hall of Fame is endorsed by the Greene County Commission.

“We look forward to celebrating and honoring women who make a difference in our communities,” Jill Kincer, publicity chair, said in a release.

Nominations may be submitted by an individual or an organization by completing the nomination form. Forms must be submitted on paper copies and returned via U.S. postal service to Greene County Women’s Hall of Fame, PO Box 703, Fairborn, Ohio 45324 along with a $5 fee. All nominations must be received on or before June 30. Nomination forms are available at www.co.greene.oh.us. Click on “Our Community,” and scroll down the menu to Greene County Women’s Hall of Fame.
