The Greene County Women's Hall of Fame was organized in March 1981 to annually honor women of Greene County, living or deceased, who have contributed to the county's growth and progress.
A selection committee, based upon the quantity of nominations, determines the number of inductees into the Hall of Fame and number of posthumous awards.
The Hall of Fame inductees and recognized individuals are selected on the basis of their contributions that have provided countywide, state, national or international impact. Achievement for recognition may have been in the arts, humanities, business, industry, agriculture, health, government, politics, sports, education, homemaking, the media, volunteer activities, distinguished personal achievements or any other specified area.
The women inducted into the Greene County Women's Hall of Fame at a ceremony in September, 2017, are:
