On May 7, 2013, the Okaloosa County Commission on the Status of Women held a ceremony to recognize the 2012 Women’s Wall of Honor Honorees in the auditorium at the University of West Florida, Emerald Coast Campus, in Fort Walton Beach. These special women have contributed to the well-being of children, families and the citizens of our community.



This year’s honorees are Michelle Anchors, Mary Burnette (deceased), Mary Florence, Martha Gorecki, Mary Hahn (deceased), Valene Harris, Deborah Hewitt, Agnes V. “Ginger” Maddox, Tammy McDaniel, Louise Meyers, Rachel Morrison, LuAnn Pulliam, Gwendolyn Slife and Gail Walker.



The honorees’ names are placed on a plaque in the library at the Fort Walton Beach campus of the University of West Florida with a nearby book containing a biographical page for each woman.
