Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius will be among this year’s inductees to Kansas University’s Women’s Hall of Fame.
This year will also mark the dedication of a site in the Kansas Union for the Hall of Fame, with a wall mounting on the fifth floor listing the names of the about 180 honorees since the program began in 1970, said Kathy Rose-Mockry, director of the Emily Taylor Women’s Resource Center.
Sebelius joins four other women being honored this year: Jacqueline Snyder, chancellor of Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City, Mo.; Maria Carlson, KU professor of Slavic languages and literature; Bozenna Pasik-Duncan, KU professor of mathematics; and Joey Sprague, KU professor of sociology.
The nominees will be honored during an induction ceremony at 7:30 p.m. today at the Kansas Room in the Kansas Union. Sebelius is not scheduled to attend.
