Karen Mueller Selected as ATHENA® Award Finalist

Karen Mueller, Executive Vice President at HORAN, is a finalist for the Cincy Magazine’s 2012 ATHENA®Awards. The award is named for the Greek Goddess of wisdom and courage, and highlights women in the Greater Cincinnati community who embody these two characteristics. The women selected as finalists for the award have attained professional excellence, helped their communities through service and acted as role models and mentors by giving their guidance to other women in the area. A panel of judges will select the winner of the ATHENA® Award at an event held at The Cintas Center at Xavier University on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. The event will be hosted by WLWT-TV News 5 Anchor Sheree Paolello and feature Dr. Venus Opal Reese, CEO and Founder of Defy Impossible Inc. as a keynote speaker. The program is in its seventh year and is a branch of ATHENA International, an organization with the mission to support and recognize women around the world. Past award recipients include Dr. Judith Harmony, former professor of pharmacology and cell biophysics at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Medicine, in 2010 and Annie Ruth, a visual artist, author, arts educator and President and CEO at Eye of the Artists, in 2011.
