Athena Award

It's not an Emmy or an Oscar, but earning the Athena Award in Wausau is quite an honor.

Rosemary Barnes was presented the Athena Award Wednesday at a luncheon by the Wausau/Marathon County Chamber of Commerce.

The award is given each year to a man or woman who helps provide opportunities for women.

Barnes dedicates a lot of her time to the girl scouts on both a national and local level. She is also a mother with her own financial planning practice in Wausau.
