HARRISBURG, Pa. (Aug. 25, 2015) -- The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce has named Kim Capers, Capital BlueCross Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) outreach coordinator, as this year’s recipient of the chamber’s ATHENA Award.

“Kim sets a wonderful example as a leader in our community,” said Anne Baum, Capital BlueCross vice president, Lehigh Valley. “She always lends a hand to offer assistance, yet she remains humble and never seeks the spotlight. The Capital BlueCross brand and our CHIP program are enhanced everyday by Kim and her excellent reputation.

Capers graduated with a degree in business/marketing and health care management, from Muhlenberg College.
