Deadline approaching for Athena nominations

The deadline for submitting nominations for the 30th annual DeKalb Chamber Athena Award and Women of Accomplishment recognition is fast approaching.

Do you know an individual that should be recognized for business and professional accomplishments, for community service, and for serving as a role model to encourage women to reach their full leadership potential?

Athena nominees must live or work in DeKalb and still be active in their careers. The Women of Accomplishment Award recognizes those who embody the Athena criteria but who are retired or no longer working in DeKalb County.

Deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16. Nomination forms are available in the DeKalb Chamber office, 164 E. Lincoln Highway and online at

The Athena recognition is a national program sponsored locally by DeKalb Sycamore Chevrolet Buick GMC, the Daily Chronicle and the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce. This year's award recognition event will be held Oct. 22 and is open to the community.
