Athena Awards Luncheon

Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

A large crowd gathered at the Embassy Suites for the ATHENA Awards Luncheon to celebrate the accomplishments of the 16 ATHENA nominees and the 7 Young Professional nominees from Rutherford County. Dr. Linda Gilbert, Director of Murfreesboro City Schools and nominated by United Way, was the recipient of the 2019 ATHENA Award. The Young Professional Leadership Award went to Erin Rains, a family nurse practitioner for Saint Thomas Medical Partners and nominated by Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Center. Guest speakers for the event were Terri Donovan and Jean Anne Rogers, each relating stories of the beginnings of Rutherford CABLE ten years ago, then ATHENA Awards four years later.

The ATHENA Awards recognize individuals who excel in their profession, give back to the community, and help raise up other leaders, with the Young Professional awarded to a woman under 40.
