selenaSelena will be one of five Texas women inducted in the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame in October.

On Thursday, Gov. Greg Abbott announced Selena Quintanilla Perez as one five women to be inducted to the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame.

“I am honored to welcome these five extraordinary women into the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame,” Abbott stated in a news release. “Whether in public service, the arts, business or education, these leaders have inspired generations of Texans to reach new heights, achieve new goals and elevate the Lone Star State.”

The Tejano superstar was inducted along with pilot and businesswoman Emma Carter Browning; entrepreneur Susie Hitchcock-Hall; Giner Kerrick, division chief of the Flight Operations Directorate Integration Division at NASA and Renu Khator, chancellor of the University of Houston system and president of the University of Houston.
