A Woman’s Herstory Program: Famous Missouri Women

A Woman’s Herstory Program: Famous Missouri Women honors the part that Missouri women have played in state and national history. Four female seniors from Holt County high schools have been selected to research and write an essay on famous women who are from, or have influenced, Missouri. These famous women include entrepreneurs, pioneers, politicians, philanthropists, educators, athletes, and more. Their stories were forwarded to both of the Holt County newspapers and displayed on the following Facebook pages—Holt County MO Historical Society; Mound City; Forest City; and Oregon municipal pages.
