U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was honored Thursday with the national Athena Leadership Award during a luncheon at the Westin La Paloma.

Giffords aide Ron Barber picked it up on her behalf, as the congresswoman is still recovering from the Jan. 8 shootings in Tucson.

On the regional level, Keri Lazarus Silvyn was awarded the Athena award for Southern Arizona at Thursday's event, hosted by the Arizona Small Business Association.

The awards recognize leaders "who demonstrate the highest levels of professional excellence, give back to their communities and assist other women in realizing their full leadership potential."

Silvyn is a partner at Lewis and Roca LLP and has practiced in the areas of zoning, land use, real estate and environmental law since 1998. She has donated thousands of hours of pro-bono work to the Florence Immigrant Rights and Refugee Project.

"She is the visionary behind Imagine Greater Tucson and serves as the chair of its Board of Directors," the Small Business Association said in a news release.

Silvyn was selected among 10 finalists. The others were Vicki Began, Mary Darling, Katharine Kent, Nancy Meech, Marylee Pangman, Lesli Pintor, Mary Rowley, Soyeon Shim and Jan Woods.
