ATHENA Patrons Society


The Rutherford ATHENA Patrons Society provides the ATHENA Award Program with much-needed funding, supports future leaders through the ATHENA Nontraditional Scholarship, and provides Society members added benefits. The Patrons Society is supported by both women and men who have been and are a part of the ATHENA legacy and who are committed to its continuation.

Drawing from the ranks of past ATHENA nominees, judges, committee members, as well as RUTHERFORD Cable members and community leaders, the Rutherford ATHENA Patrons Society represents a cross-section of Rutherford Countians who are dedicated to the ATHENA Leadership Model and who promote the personal and professional success embodied by the spirit of ATHENA. Support the Rutherford ATHENA Award Program and join the Patrons Society today.
