On Friday, June 16, the Metro South Chamber and Eastern Bank presented the 19th Annual ATHENA Award during a special luncheon to an exceptional individual who has achieved excellence in his/her business or profession, has served the community in a meaningful way, and has assisted women in reaching their full leadership potential. This luncheon took place at the Old Colony YMCA in Stoughton.

The ATHENA Awards Program was created in 1982 and has expanded to over 500 cities in the United States, Russia, Canada, China, The United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. The Metro South Chamber believes in the values underlying the ATHENA Foundation’s philosophy of incorporating the talents and expertise of women into the leadership of our businesses, communities and government. Tickets are $30 for members and $40 for future-members. To register, or to nominate an individual for an ATHENA award, please call Athena Lavoie at (508) 586-0500 x 231. Sponsored by Eastern Bank.

ATHENA LUNCHEON: Last year, the keynote speaker was Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey. Since taking office, Healey has tackled issues touching the lives of residents across Massachusetts including the heroin and prescription drug abuse epidemic, escalating health care costs, workers’ rights and student loan costs. She has focused on strengthening consumer protections and on improving our criminal justice system.

The luncheon program also featured the presentation of the ATHENA Award to this year’s recipient.
