Chelsea Clinton will visit Kansas City in February to help launch a new initiative to honor accomplished Kansas City area women.

The Starr Women’s Hall of Fame is named for the late Martha Jane Phillips Starr, a Kansas City philanthropist.

Starr was one of the first women to become a member of the University of Missouri-Kansas City board of trustees. She also helped start the UMKC Women’s Council and its Graduate Assistance Fund. She died in 2011.

Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will speak Feb. 24 at UMKC’s Swinney Recreation Center.

The first class of the Starr Women’s Hall of Fame will be inducted in the fall of 2014.
