Luncheon to recognize Athena scholarship recipients

A luncheon Friday, June 3, will recognize the 2020 and 2021 recipients of the Athena scholarship, which supports post-secondary students who excel academically, exhibit extensive community involvement, and work to help girls and women reach their full potential as leaders.

Pandemic precautions had prompted organizers to twice cancel the annual celebration. The June event will recognize 2020 recipients Tara Chan (MBA 2020, JD 2020), Paige Coyne (BHK 2017, MHK 2019), and Celina DeBiasio (BA 2017) of the University of Windsor, as well as St. Clair College student Sierra Scott-Kilgo; and 2021 honourees Anumita Jain and Jacqueline Eboh (JD 2022) of the University of Windsor, Trevor Ramieri of St. Clair College, and University of Toronto student Alessandra Ceccacci.

Organizers plan to resume the regular schedule this fall and have scheduled the 2022 Athena Scholarship Luncheon for Nov. 18. UWindsor chancellor Mary Jo Haddad will deliver a keynote address.
