"To receive an award because you are a relentless advocate and because you raise up that next generation of those who would have no voice if there wasn’t someone to help empower…it was awesome!" said Rev. Dr. Lanette Plambeck, pastor of Atlantic First UMC. In a conversation with Dr. Art McClanahan, Dr. Plameck said, "The Athena Award is given to a female in leadership who has advocated for women and children and served as a mentor to her business, whatever that might be, and to the broader community and region. I was the fourteenth woman in Iowa to receive it."
