6 women nominated for 2019 Athena Awards

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The finalists in the 2019 Athena Awards have been announced.

Six women will compete for the top honor.

The Athena Award, which is now in their 28th year, honors women in the community that exhibit leadership.

Southwest Indiana Chamber President Tara Barney says although she’s new to the area, she’s proud to see these women make a difference in the community.

“It’s fun to come here and to find that this process has been a part of the community for a long time," Barney explains. "We’ve got some really great representatives of the Athena Award space this year.”

The winner will be announced at a luncheon on February 22 at the Old National Events Plaza.
