(Nov. 20, 2012) -- The 2012 HUB Recognition Ceremony recently honored several individuals and departments for their contributions to the HUB (historically underutilized businesses) program. HUB vendors are minority- and women-owned businesses certified by the state.
Award winners were chosen through a point system, which took into account budget, number of HUB vendors utilized and the percentage of dollars spent with HUBs. Top departments were chosen on the same point system amongst their respective areas.
Thirteen outstanding HUB Employee Advocates and three HUB Department Advocates were recognized at the event. Many of the winners received special Texas-shaped awards to recognize their support of Texas HUBs. Speakers for the program included Kerry Kennedy, vice president for business affairs, and Pamela Bacon, associate vice president for administration.
