The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Lubbock-West Texas District Office has named Tri-State General Contracting Group as the 2017 West Texas 8a Graduate Firm of the Year.
The SBA will award Jerry Reynosa of Tri-Sate General Contracting Group on Thursday, May 18 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Happy State Bank’s Executive Dining Room.
The SBA Lubbock West Texas District office will also be awarding Happy State Bank with the 2017 Lubbock West Texas District Rising Star Lender award for approving 24 loans for $3.8 million, demonstrating a long-term commitment to SBA lending.
The 8a program allowed Tri-State to access many projects at the Pantex Plant and other government installations.
“Jerry Reynosa and Tri-State General Contractors are a treasure here in the Panhandle,” Palmer says, “the future looks bright for Jerry and his company—mostly due to his leadership, but in part due to the experiences gained through the 8a program. Jerry is very deserving of the honor of being named the West Texas 8a Graduate of the Year.”
