The Pontiac Chamber of Commerce surprised its 2016 Athena Award winner Tuesday night.

Karen Donovan, executive director of Futures Unlimited is this year’s recipient of this award achieved through nominations from people throughout the community. Donovan said she was humbled by the recognition.

“I was totally shocked. Many of the previous winners, I know, and some of them were mentors over the years, and it’s just really an honor to be in that group of people. It was overwhelming, actually,” Donovan said.

The luncheon honoring Donovan is happening Wednesday, November 16 at Baby Bulls Fine Dining at noon.
