Three St. Lawrence University alumnae were among those nominated for the 15th Annual Athena Award given recently in Rochester, New York.

Presented by the Greater Rochester Metro Chamber of Commerce Women's Council since 1987, the award recognizes and honors Rochester-area businesswomen who have demonstrated excellence both professionally and personally; provided leadership for other women; and effected change in their business and their community. It is Rochester's most prestigious award for women and the only award in Greater Rochester which exclusively honors women in business.

Anne Benedict '73, senior vice president and regional credit manager of FleetBoston Financial Corp.; Nancy Dickerson '69, vice president, chief fiduciary officer and corporate secretary of the Genesee Valley Trust Co.; and Diane Kurty '75, vice president for finance of the Sutherland Group Ltd. all were among the nominees for the 2001 Athena Award in Rochester.
