The Chamber awarded Merchant with the 2018 Athena Award. The award honors someone who excels in their profession and devotes their time and energy to women and the community.

Merchant said, "Humbled. I was surprised when they called me, certainly, and appreciate the opportunity to give back to the community. For me, I always just do it because it's the right thing to do never for any kind of recognition."
