The Mountain View Chamber of Commerce will be presenting ATHENA awards to Mountain View residents Jessica Nowaski and Davida Brooks on Thursday, April 17, at an awards ceremony and luncheon.
ATHENA International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting female leaders, has been presenting ATHENA awards since 1982 to women who work to improve the lives of others in their communities and assist women in realizing their leadership potential.
Nowaski is a captain in the Mountain View Police Department, and the recipient of the 23rd annual ATHENA award. Brooks, a marketing coordinator at Sum of All Numbers, will be presented with the chamber's fifth ATHENA Young Professionals award.
With the help of sponsors, the chamber is granting $15,000 in scholarships to 12 students from De Anza College, Foothill College and the Mountain View-Los Altos High School District.
The recipients of their SOAR scholarship are: Guadalupe Berrospe, Andres Cuenca, Jessica Fernandez, Luis Gonzalez, Dafne Hernandez, Trang Le, Marco Martinez, Rose Martinez, Stephanie Yau and Binh Nguyen.
Tickets for the awards luncheon are available for $25 for Mountain View Chamber of Commerce members and $35 for the public. They can be purchased online at chambermv.org through the "Upcoming Events" sidebar on the page.
