UTPA's Small Business Development Center has received national recognition for its work.
The center received the Service Excellence and Innovation Center Award a few days ago. More than 80 small businesses were created through the center within the last year. It has been helping businesses throughout the Valley for more than 25 years. Officials say there are a number of reasons why the center was recognized with this top honor. The center is located off of South Closner road in Edinburg and officials hope to have even more success in the future.
