Tamara 'Tammy' Thomsen: a 2014 WDHOF Inductee

These extraordinary women will be officially inducted into the WDHOF on 29th March 2014, at the Beneath The Sea Awards Banquet in New Jersey.

Bonnie Toth, President of the Women Divers Hall of Fame stated, "This year we had a very large field of very talented, accomplished nominees, which made the decision process a very difficult one. Those who were not chosen have every reason to be proud of their accomplishments. The selection process has affirmed our belief that women throughout the world are doing great things to make a difference in the diving community and the marine environment. And I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who nominated and wrote letters of support.

I am thrilled to announce that we will be inducting the following ladies next Spring."
