Owner: Karen Jackson
Nature of Business: Trophies, Awards, and Medals
City: San Angelo, TX
Advisor: Paul Howard 

Karen and her family purchased Angelo Awards a few years ago and
have been very pleased with their investment. Business has been very
good. However, Karen knew she could not just sit back on her laurels.
Karen heard about the HUB certification and wanted to learn more.

She contacted the Angelo State University • Small Business Development
Center and met with Advisor Paul Howard. Paul and Karen worked
together to fill out the paperwork so Angelo Awards could be a HUB

After completing the application and sending in supporting documentation, Karen’s business was approved and added to the HUB directory. She now has the opportunity to sell her products to state agencies and universities.

Karen said, “The SBDC encouraged us to get our HUB certification. They helped with all the paperwork even though it was quite lengthy. I couldn’t have asked for more.” 

Angelo Awards has hired one new employee and retained three
employees. The business hopes to expand in the future now that it has
the HUB certification
