Seeking Athena nominations

Nominations are being sought for 20th Annual ATHENA Award, sponsored by the Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce, Alpena Power Company, Lafarge, and the Zonta Club of Alpena.

The prestigious Athena Award recognizes an individual for business and professional accomplishments, for community service, and for serving as a role model to encourage women to reach their full leadership potential. Both men and women are eligible for the award.

Athena nominees must live or work in Alpena, Alcona, Montmorency and Presque Isle counties, and still be active in their careers. A selection committee of prominent community leaders will review all nomination forms and select the recipient.

The Athena recipient will be announced Nov. 12 at 11:30 a.m. during a Greek luncheon at the Sanctuary Inn and Conference Center. Tickets are $20 per person and a limited number are available at the Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce.

The deadline for nominations is Sept. 2 and forms must be submitted to the Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce-ATHENA Award, 235 W. Chisholm Street, Alpena, MI 49707. Nomination forms can be downloaded by logging on to and clicking on ATHENA Award, or by calling Jackie Krawczak at 354-4181.
