The Medina County Women’s Journal will present these prestigious Awards on October 9, 2019 to exemplary women leaders from our community at the seventh annual award ceremony.


In its fifteenth year of print, the mission of The Medina County Women’s Journal is to Educate, Energize, and Empower Women Through Knowledge.  ATHENA International and our organization have such a similar mission that it was natural for us to bring the ATHENA Awards to Medina County in 2013 to acknowledge these remarkable women leaders.

The ATHENA International was founded in 1982 and the mission is to support, develop, and honor women leaders, and is reflective of a quote attributed to Plato, “What is honored in a country will be cultivated there.”  This quote has inspired our program’s format, as we will be honoring ALL nominated women who are improving the quality of life for others in our community with an award of a “Women of Our Community.” We also present the ATHENA Young Professional to one young emerging leader.  Following the dinner program, one woman will be honored with the ATHENA Leadership Award.

ATHENA Young Professional Award

Sponsored by the Greater Medina Chamber of Commerce

Honoring an emerging leader from Medina County that demonstrates excellence in her profession, improves the quality of life for others, and serves as a role model for young women.


We are excited to have our seventh annual award program. This signature celebration acknowledges AMAZING women that should be honored for all their hard work AND the organizations they represent. Each year they have inspired and empowered me to continue to produce this program. All of the women will be featured in our August September issue of The Medina County Women’s Journal . I encourage you to join us at the program to celebrate these women and learn more about the community we call home. ~ Tara Haley, Associate Publisher and Program Director
