NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Mayor Jennifer A. Macksey is seeking nominations from the public for the Women's History Hall of Fame. 
The mayor, the first woman to lead the city, established the Hall of Fame last year to recognize women who "have had a positive impact on the community, and have been an overall example of courage, strength and wisdom." The founding members are former City Council President Frances Buckley, former Gov. Jane Swift, women's boxing pioneer Gail Grandchamp and the late state Rep. Gailanne Cariddi.  
The woman inducted into the Hall of Fame will have her name added to the plaque hanging inside City Hall.
Forms must be submitted by Monday, Feb. 20. 
The goal of this project is to spotlight the important and unrecognized women of the city of North Adams who deserve to be acknowledged.
The nomination form requires biographical information regarding the nominee, a resume or other written materials that showcase the personal and professional accomplishments, awards, and other achievements qualifying them the nomination, along with other supporting materials like a photograph or items of interest if possible.
