Trudy Platzer, a Local Leading Woman Herself Says:

"I wholeheartedly respect leading women in Southern Nevada. Each year it was a very intense responsibility and decision to pick a well-deserved local Leading Lady in Power, and helping her to step into the 'Athena Award' limelight for their unique accomplishments in our community in more ways than one. I was so proud of each of the Athena Award finalists; and I was extremely happy for them to have reached their well-deserved 'Athena Award' recognition."   

 

A DAY OF CELEBRATION AT THE 2010 'WCCNV' EVENT:
