Catherine Burns Quencer Is Athena Award Winner

Posted: Updated:

It's one of the north country's biggest community honors.

Catherine Burns Quencer is the 2017 Athena Award recipient for her work with the community and leadership among women.

Quencer has been a lawyer with the Schwerzmann & Wise Law Firm for 22 years and sits on multiple volunteer committees - many involving healthcare.

She adds it's important to pass on the torch of volunteering.

"The rewards are endless. You meet great people, you build great friendships. You learn a lot and there's a real sense of satisfaction when something you do makes something better in the community," she said.

The award is given out by the Greater Watertown-North Country Chamber of Commerce. The Athena Award Dinner honoring Quencer will be September 7 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Watertown.
