Ten Southern Arizona women will be recognized by the Arizona Small Business Association at its 2nd Annual ATHENA Award Luncheon on Sept. 22. The awards honor women "who demonstrate the highest levels of professional excellence, give back to their communities and, most importantly, assist other women in realizing their full leadership potential," the association says.

The 10 finalists in Southern Arizona are: Vicki Began, vice president of patient services and nursing at University Medical Center; Mary Darling, owner of Darling Environmental and Surveying Ltd.; Katharine Kent, president of The Solar Store; Nancy Meech, founding partner of Heinfeld, Meech & Co. PC.; Marylee Pangman, owner of The Contained Gardener; Lesli Pintor, senior vice president of National Bank of Arizona; Mary Rowley, president and owner of Strongpoint Public Relations; Soyeon Shim, director of the University of Arizona's John and Doris Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences; Keri Lazarus Silvyn, partner at Lewis and Roca LLP; and Janet (Jan) Woods, hospital administrator and co-owner of Veterinary Specialty Center of Tucson.
