At first, there were 80 nominations, from which 21 were recognized for the 23rd annual Governor’s Award for Outstanding New Mexico Women.
Then came the naming of two to the New Mexico Women’s Hall of Fame — and the first ever to win the award from Las Vegas.
At a banquet on Friday in Albuquerque, local soup kitchen and library volunteer Carol Durham became an honoree into the New Mexico Women’s Hall of Fame. She joins 50 other women to have received the honor since its inception 22 years ago.
