SCORE recognized for performance excellence

The Aiken chapter of SCORE has received accolades for its extraordinary performance in the local area. The chapter received the Performance Excellence Award for achieving outstanding performance in Fiscal Year 2010. The award was presented by the national SCORE Association, a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).


Local SCORE chapter chair, Chuck Newton, said, "This award is a testament to the dedication of our team of volunteers, who are committed to helping new and current small businesses succeed.  It also validates the work of our 2010 chair, Bernie Girouard, who founded the local SCORE chapter and who has served as chair for four of the last six years."
