The induction luncheon for the 2018 National Cowgirl Hall of Fame was held on November 1 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center’s Round Up Inn in Fort Worth, Texas. The event honored women of the past as well as the present. This year’s inductees, like those before them, exemplify courage, independence, and resilience, as well as a trailblazing spirit. This year’s class included a medical doctor who is also a Paralympian, a horse master whose work can be seen in “Wonder Woman” as well as the “Game of Thrones” series, a champion barrel racer, an early trailblazer and newspaper owner, and a master engraver.

Dedicated to celebrating and honoring the women who have exemplified their own brand of resilience and independence, the 43rd Annual Induction Luncheon and Ceremony held by the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame featured two women as international inductees. This was the first time that anyone residing outside of the U.S. had been honored. With a focus on preserving the history and impact these women had on the American West, the international inductees were recognized for their efforts specific to elements of that lifestyle, coupled with the spirit and enthusiasm with which they pursued their dreams.

In past years, many of the inductees have been ranchers, competitive performers, writers and artists, entertainers, and leaders of industry. Since its inception in 1975, over 200 amazing women have been inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame. Four to five ladies are chosen annually for this honor, selected from hundreds of excellent nominees. This year’s inductees included Sherry Cervi, Caroline Lockhart, Camilla Naprous, Diane Scalese, and Dr. Angelika Trabert. Bios for each of these women and overviews of their successes can be found at the link provided here.
