Black Chamber honors small businesses

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 by Mark Richardson

The Greater Austin Black Chamber of Commerce has named its 2015 Small Business Award winners. More than 600 attendees gathered at the downtown Hilton for the ceremonies last week. This year’s awards included the inaugural Native Star Award, which went to George Howell, a CNN anchor who attended high school and college in Austin. Other award winners included a number of small-business owners who have made a mark on the Austin area, including Small Business of the Year honorees Shuronda Robinson of Adisa Communications and Monalisa Sanders of Platinum Dreams Designs. More than a dozen business owners and others received awards. The chamber also presented three Austin-area college students with $3,000 scholarships. For a complete list of winners, go here.
