Perry, President of the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce, are all finalists for the award, which will be handed out at the Chamber's Annual Meeting & Economic Excellence Awards on January 31st, 2019. 

The award, which is being sponsored by Richland Bank, is presented each year to an individual who exemplifies professional excellence and community service. The award also honors the winner for actively assisting women in their attainment of professional excellence and leadership skills. 

The Richland Area Chamber of Commerce became the new home for the ATHENA Award in 2016 after being given out by the TWIN (A Tribute to Women & Industry) Committee in Richland County since 1989. The nominations were reviewed by a panel of past ATHENA Award recipients who then selected the three finalists and the recipient, who will be announced at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting.

In addition to the ATHENA Award, the Chamber will also be announcing the Chairman’s Award recipient as well as several Economic Excellence Awards.
