Description

Join the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame March 7, 2017 for a special Women’s History Month presentation. A significant number of Boulder women enjoy a place in the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame. From Native Americans and early settlers to cutting edge scientists, Boulder women have made Colorado proud by making an impact on the world. Join Wendy Bohling, board member of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame to learn about the women in the Hall of Fame and their outstanding achievements.

 

This speaking engagement will focus on Mary Rippon, who taught for 31 years at CU in Boulder, and Hazel Schmoll, who was a state botanist and served as a nature guide in Rocky Mountain National Park, well into her seventies.

About the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame:

The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame was created to recognize, honor and preserve the contributions of trailblazing Colorado women. Both historical and contemporary women have shared foresight, vision and accomplishment, but lacked a forum for recognition. Since 1985, the Hall has inducted 152 extraordinary women who have been outstanding in their field, elevated the status of women, helped open new frontiers for women or inspired others by their example. Inductees include scientists, teachers, social activists, philanthropists, authors, business leaders, elected officials and more.
