The Citizen of the Year Award is the most prestigious award presented to a Shiawassee County resident. The individual must have demonstrated an active interest and significant involvement within the community and has, throughout their efforts, assisted the Chamber in meeting its mission. The SRCC is honored to partner with the Argus Press as the permanent sponsor of the award. The award has been presented annually since 1982 and is sponsored by The Argus Press.

The ATHENA Award was first presented in 1982 and is administered by ATHENA International, headquartered in North Carolina. ATHENA is an international non-profit organization dedicated to supporting, developing and honoring women leaders, inspiring women to achieve their full potential-creating balance in leadership worldwide. The Shiawassee County ATHENA Award is sponsored by The Schluckebier/Hood Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors.
Four new Shiawassee County awards were established in 2018: The Heart of Shiawassee Award, The Entrepreneur Award, The Innovation Award and Community Champion. These awards are presented by Chemical Bank to honor deserving businesses, organizations and community members. 

“For nearly four decades, the community has come together each year to honor and recognize some of their peers who, in one way or another, have stood out, excelled or demonstrated some trait of excellence that they feel deserves acknowledgement. Over the years, the format of the program has changed, the number of awards has varied, but through it all, the desire to recognize, that which is extraordinary in our community, remains,” said Shiawassee Regional Chamber President/CEO Jeff Deason. 

The formal award presentations will take place at the SRCC Annual Dinner and Awards Night on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at D’Mar Banquet & Conference Center in Owosso.
