Greene County Women's Hall of Fame
Endorsed by the Greene County Board of Commissioners
The Greene County Women's Hall of Fame was established in 1981 by the late Alice Mae Warner Halle and is endorsed by the Greene County Board of Commissioners. Plaques with each honoree's name, in order of the year she was inducted, are on display in the Commissioners' Chamber in Xenia. The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to celebrate and honor women of varied backgrounds and talents for their dedication to making Greene County a better place to live.
A selection committee, based upon the quantity of nominations, determines the number of inductees into the Hall of Fame and number of posthumous awards.
The Hall of Fame inductees and recognized individuals are selected on the basis of their contributions that have provided countywide, state, national or international impact. Achievement for recognition may have been in the arts, humanities, business, industry, agriculture, health, government, politics, sports, education, homemaking, the media, volunteer activities, distinguished personal achievements or any other specified area.
