Congresswoman in line for ATHENA leadership honor on leadership to go to congresswoman Giffords, aide to receive national awards

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and one of her aides have been selected to receive national awards.

Giffords was selected for the 2011 National Athena Award, which is given to female leaders who demonstrate professional excellence, give back to their communities and assist other women in realizing their leadership potential.

Athena International will present Giffords' award Sept. 22 at its awards luncheon at the Westin La Paloma, 3800 E. Sunrise Drive.

The Arizona Small Business Association will host the luncheon.

Past winners include Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg; Nina Totenberg, a legal affairs correspondent for National Public Radio; and former NASA astronaut Dr. Sally Ride.

"There is no question that Congresswoman Giffords has been most courageous. Because of her spirit and grace, she has inspired women across the nation to persevere in overcoming obstacles and reach their full leadership potential," said Athena founder Martha Mayhood Mertz in an Arizona Small Business Association news release.

Giffords' aide Ron Barber will receive a special recognition award Aug. 24 at the 2011 Voice Awards in Hollywood, Calif.

Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup and his wife Beth also will be honored at the Voice Awards.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration will fete Barber at the Voice Awards for promoting mental-health awareness and understanding.

The group will recognize Walkup and his wife for their efforts to help Tucson and the nation deal with the Jan. 8 shooting tragedy.
