Athena Patrons Party



Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

Rutherford ATHENA Patrons Society members gathered at the home of Drs. Sherry and Russ Galloway to meet the nominees for the ATHENA Leadership Award and the ATHENA Young Professional Award. Patrons Society members provide the Award Program with much needed funding and receive added benefits. These members have been and are a part of the ATHENA legacy and are committed to its continuation.

Locally this award is presented by Rutherford Cable to a woman – or man - who is honored for professional excellence, community service and for actively assisting women in their attainment of professional excellence and leadership skills.

While enjoying wine and appetizers, guests mingled and networked in this beautiful Breckinridge home. Award recipients will be announced on April 12 during a luncheon at Embassy Suites.
