Dedicated to honoring the women of Colorado who have made (and currently make) impacts in their communities, the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame boasts 162 inductees, with 10 more honored every two years. Many of these women are unsung heroes of Colorado, like the Springs’ own Fannie Mae Duncan, or Ellis Meredith, a suffragist who was once called the Susan B. Anthony of Colorado. In honor of Pikes Peak Community College’s Veteran’s Day celebration, the Hall of Fame has lent a selection of portraits from its collection to help PPCC students and the public learn more about some extraordinary Colorado women. Each portrait in this selection represents a woman with a military, military-related, aerospace or aviation background. “Our newest member of this exhibit is Lieutenant General (Retired) Susan Helms,” says Nancy Lorentz, portraits chair for the Hall of Fame. “She is part of an elite group of NASA astronauts. She was the first military woman in space and holds the world record for the longest spacewalk [8 hours, 56 minutes].” Her portrait, and portraits of her fellow inductees, will be on display through Nov. 9.
