(WNH) — News 8 is celebrating exceptional women!

This Thursday, four women will be inducted into the 29th annual Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame.

Those honorable women include the first female President of the PGA of America, Suzy Whaley, President of the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun, Jennifer Rizzotti, the first Nepali woman to successfully summit Mt. Everest, Lhakpa Sherpa, and a pioneer in women’s sports in Connecticut, the late Cora Lee Bentley Radcliffe.

They’re all being honored for their exceptional work, inspiring spirit, and tremendous achievements in breaking the glass ceiling.
