On Tuesday, September 20, 2022, the Broward College Foundation was invited by Zonta Club of Greater Deerfield Beach to attend their monthly lunch meeting at the DoubleTree Hilton in Deerfield. During the meeting, Elisa Stone, manager of stewardship and donor relations at Broward College presented a library bookplate tribute to Zonta club member Antonia “Tonie” Hyland in memory of her late sister Ms. Elizabeth “Betty” Athansakos.
The Zonta Club of Greater Deerfield Beach is an organization dedicated to advancing the status of women worldwide through raising money to support education and provide scholarships. In 2015, Zonta of Greater Deerfield Beach established an endowment fund to help those students in financial distress who need a “leg up” to start, continue, or finish their college education.
In honor of Betty’s involvement in the community as a lawyer, judge, and women’s activist, Zonta recently changed the name of their Broward College Foundation endowed scholarship to Elizabeth Athansakos Endowed Scholarship.
