BRYAN - Local business leaders have honored a trio of organizations with an annual award for excellence.
Tuesday at the Phillips Event Center at Briarcrest (formerly Briarcrest Country Club), the Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce handed out its Community Impact Awards.
Celebrity Spa & Salon in College Station, Jacque’s Toys & Books in Bryan, and Montelongo’s Fine Jewelry in College Station are the 2014 recipients of the awards, which recognize minority and women business owners who have made significant impacts on the community.
An eligible business is a member of the Chamber, meets Historically Underutilized Business certification requirements (at least 51 percent minority ownership), and has been in business for at least five years.
The Chamber has given out the Community Impact Awards since 2003.
