The Champaign County Chamber of commerce has named our very own Sharon Allen the 2020 Athena Award® recipient. She is the 32nd local recipient of the award, which honors individuals who assist women in reaching their full leadership potential; demonstrate excellence, creativity and initiative in their businesses or professions; and provide valuable service by devoting time and energy to improving the quality of life for others in the community.

Sharon’s passion for helping women extends far beyond her valuable work with the clients of Sterling Wealth Management. She invests time in many women’s initiatives throughout the community, as well as  volunteering in various community organizations, and being a strong voice and mentor for the emerging young professionals in the wealth management and financial planning fields.

The Athena Award® will be presented at a luncheon at the Champaign Country Club on Thursday, February 20th.  Tickets are available at 2020 Athena Luncheon Registration.
