Rev. Wilkinson’s 2021 ATHENA Leadership Award

Rev. Z was the woman of the hour Wednesday, as she received the 2021 ATHENA Leadership Award presented by the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce. Her comments centered on the question “Why Am I Here” and she noted:
*The Bible was central in our family, the book that gave us direction for our lives.
*I heard a call to help families, to be part of a community. There is a responsibility that goes with it.
*We are inextricably linked.
*We cannot leave the work unfinished.
