Peggy Coe is the recipient of this year's Athena Award.
Coe received the award in Watertown Thursday night. She's credited with helping organize the Victims Assistance Center and has long been active in the Girl Scouts.
She became the first executive director of Watertown's Sci-Tech Center in 1985.
"This was, of course, a terrific surprise," Coe said. "I never dreamed I would be standing right here, accepting the award."
Thursday was also Coe's 60th wedding anniversary.
