(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.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
