WOMEN'S HALL OF FAME
OCCSW Women's Hall of Fame
JOIN US IN CELEBRATING THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE 19TH AMENDMENT RATIFYING WOMEN'S RIGHT TO VOTE.
After its formation in 1995, the OCCSW founded the Okaloosa County Women’s Hall of Fame to honor the women of Okaloosa County - past and present - whose contributions to the arts, athletics, business, education, government, the humanities, philanthropy and science, have been of great value to our community’s development.
