County requests nominations for Women’s Hall of Fame

RELEASE DATE: June 6, 2007

TAVARES — The Board of County Commissioners is asking the public to nominate outstanding Lake County women to be considered for induction into the Lake County Women’s Hall of Fame.

Nomination forms are available online at www.lakecountyfl.gov or at the Board of County Commissioners’ office, room 316 of the Lake County Administration Building, 315 W. Main St., Tavares. Nominations for 2007 must be received by Aug. 17.

Nominees typically have made significant contributions to the improvement of life for citizens and have enhanced the role of women in Lake County. A selection committee of five citizens reviews nominations, and those selected will be honored at the State of the County event in October.

On Oct. 27 of last year, Norma Hendricks and Susannah Sellar Henderson were enshrined into the Lake County Women’s Hall of Fame. Hendricks, who passed away on Aug. 15, 1990, was the first woman elected to the Leesburg City Commission and to serve as Leesburg Mayor. Henderson, who currently serves as a Leesburg City Commissioner, was first elected to the City Commission in 1981 and has served as Leesburg Mayor on three different occasions. The two women became the 20th and 21st women selected for the prestigious honor.

Nominations will remain on file for two consecutive years for reconsideration. For more information about the Lake County Women’s Hall of Fame or to have a nomination form mailed out, call (352) 343-9849.
