Mote Marine Laboratory Founding Director Dr. Eugenie Clark will be one of three women inducted into the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame during a March 23 ceremony.
Gov. Charlie Crist selected Clark, along with missing children’s advocate Claudine Ryce and Olympic gold medalist swimmer Dara Torres from a list of 10 finalists submitted to him by the Florida Commission on the Status of Women.
“The leadership of these women is what helps to make Florida such a wonderful state,” Crist said in a prepared statement. “Their remarkable achievements have improved their communities and the entire Sunshine State, and they deserve great praise for their dedication. It is a privilege to recognize their contributions through the Florida Women's Hall of Fame.”
