Jasper Rotary decides to postpone 9th Annual Athena award until 2021
JASPER ROTARY CLUB PAUSES THE ATHENA AWARD® EVENT IN 2020
The Rotary Club of Jasper will pause its ninth annual ATHENA International Leadership Award® event previously scheduled for August 20, 2020 to be held on a date to be determined in 2021.
Our decision was a difficult one. The ATHENA committee and Rotary club members were active in the ultimate decision. We chose to pause in 2020 rather than try to handle the event in some scaled back way, preserving the significance of both the ATHENA event and the significance of the historical pandemic.
Per Joyce Fleck, Committee Chair for ATHENA nominations, “Nominations created and submitted for 2020 should be resubmitted in 2021 when we can fully resume giving everyone and every detail the full attention and recognition deserved.” The nomination form featured on our website www.jasperrotary.com will be used for 2021.
We thank our ATHENA sponsors German American, Kimball Electronics, Kimball International, Master Brand Cabinets, and Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center platinum level sponsors and are communicating with them and our keynote speaker Kristie Juster regarding the change to the 2020 event.
