HOUSTON – The Lone Star College-Small Business Development Center Advisory Council has named 24 finalists for its 32nd Annual Small Business of the Year awards.

“Small businesses contribute to local economies by bringing growth and innovation to the community,” said Miguel Lopez, LSC SBDC executive director. “To these owners, there is nothing small about their businesses and Lone Star College is honored to recognize them.”

Nominees for the award were gathered from members of the local community, business leaders, chamber of commerce organizations and economic development groups. These finalists were selected on the basis of leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, business growth and contribution to the community.

Winners of the LSC-SBDC award will be honored Nov. 15 at the 32nd Annual Small Business of the Year Awards Luncheon held at the Lone Star Community Building Star of Texas Ballroom.
