9th annual Rutherford Athena Awards is set for April



RUTHERFORD Cable, founding sponsor of the ATHENA International Leadership Award for Rutherford County, announces the 2022 nominees for this year’s award; 12 area women representing 12 Rutherford County organizations have been nominated, along with seven young professional women.

The community-wide celebration of this year’s nominees is open to the public and will be held Friday, April 29, at the Embassy Suites Hotel, 1200 Conference Center Boulevard. The luncheon event begins at 11:30 a.m. Tickets are $65 per person or $600 for a table of 10. To reserve a seat at the luncheon, please go to rutherfordcable.org/Athena to register.  

In addition to honoring the accomplishments and contributions of Rutherford County women, the Rutherford ATHENA Awards also provides a $3,000 educational scholarship to a Rutherford County non-traditional female student who has been out of high school for at least five years. The local program is part of ATHENA International, a nonprofit organization that seeks to support, develop and honor women leaders. Since its founding in 1982, more than 8,000 ATHENA awards have been presented in eight countries.  

“The ATHENA program showcases the caliber of professional, committed leaders we are fortunate to have here in our community. These women excel in their careers, give back to their community and help develop other leaders making our community a better place to live. We are proud to introduce to you the 2022 Rutherford ATHENA Nominees.,” said Lori Cutler, 2022 Rutherford ATHENA chair. 

RUTHERFORD Cable President Amelia Bozeman said, “RUTHERFORD Cable is proud to be the founding sponsor of the Rutherford ATHENA International Leadership Awards program, which is now in its ninth year. In addition to recognizing remarkable women for their accomplishments and their contributions to our community, this program provides a scholarship each year for a local woman who is returning to school to further her education. Our investment in this program and the scholarship that it provides exemplifies RUTHERFORD Cable's mission of moving women forward; we are proud to support current and future leaders in Rutherford County."
