Each year during the closing banquet at its national conference, the Association of Small Business Development Centers recognizes one individual from each state who has demonstrated a dedication and strong commitment to their state's SBDC program. These nominees are selected for the Association's "State Star Award."
Are congratulations go out to Mrs. Robbie Medders on being selected as Alabama's 2003 "State Star." Robbie started to work at JSU in 1982 and has held 4 positions while working for the Small Business Development Center. We are proud of her and her outstanding service to the SBDC program in Alabama. The work that the SBDC does directly affects the economic climate of Alabama. Robbie was presented with her award by an official of the Small Business Administration at the conference in San Diego on October 4.
We are pleased that the 2003 Alabama "State Star Award" recipient comes from Jacksonville State University. Robbie was nominated by her state director, Mr. Bill Campbell.
