(Dec. 20, 2011) -- The 2011 HUB Recognition Ceremony honored several individuals and departments for their contribution to the UTSA Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB) program. Award winners were chosen through a point system that took into account budget, number of HUB vendors utilized and the percentage of dollars spent with HUBs. HUB vendors are minority- and women-owned businesses certified by the state.
Twenty-three outstanding HUB Employee Advocates and eight HUB Department Advocates were recognized at the event. Winners received special Texas-shaped awards to recognize their support of Texas HUBs.
Speakers for the program included Gage Paine, UTSA vice president for student affairs, and Pamela Bacon, UTSA associate vice president for administration.
