The late Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla was among the five iconic women who were inducted into the Texas Women's Hall of Fame over the weekend.

Along with the rest of Selena's many historic accomplishments -- like introducing the Tejano genre into mainstream music -- the Queen of Tex-Mex was notably recognized by the Texas governor for "shattering stereotypes and expectations, proving the impossible is always possible."

Her sister Suzette Quintanilla was there to receive the award on behalf of Selena and her family. "I feel very proud in knowing there's a new generation who has embraced and looked up to her as a role model. I know my sister would be ecstatic to be accepting this award that's so empowering for women."  

We are happy to announce that today, Selena was inducted into the Texas Women's Hall of Fame at the Texas Woman’s...
