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.

For those of us interested enough to read what you wrote, but not interested enough to look up historical sports facts on Kathleen Sebelius we don't already know, it might have been nice to note what exactly she did?
