Athena Award nominees sought

Community members are encouraged to submit nominations for the 27th annual DeKalb Athena Award and Women of Accomplishment.

The 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 women and men are eligible for the award. Athena nominees must live or work in DeKalb and still be active in their careers.
