FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The National Cowgirl Museum’s Induction Ceremony is Postponed
Rescheduled for Fall 2021
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (Jan. 25, 2021) – The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame has made the decision to postpone the 45th Annual Induction Luncheon and Ceremony that was originally scheduled for spring 2021. The new date of the Induction celebrations will be Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021 at the Dickies Arena, where the Museum will welcome five 2021 Inductees and the Patsy Montana Award Recipient.
The change of date was due to ensuring the well-being of visitors, staff, Honorees and volunteers.
“As excited as we are to induct this new class of amazing Honorees, people’s health and safety is our first concern,” said the Museum’s executive director Patricia Riley. “We appreciate everyone’s understanding and will look forward to a great event in October.”
These incoming Hall of Fame members represent a wide range of cowgirls – from a country music superstar, to a world champion breakaway roper, a renowned artist, cowboy hat designer and an Olympic medalist. The induction class includes Pop Chalee, Lari Dee Guy, Kathryn Kusner, Lavonna “Shorty” Koger and Miranda Lambert.
The Patsy Montana Award Recipient Christina Voros is a cinematographer and has worked on hit series such as Yellowstone.
