March 29, 2017 - Director Terri Denison, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration's Georgia District Office, has announced the winners of the 2017 National Small Business Week awards for Georgia.

"We believe that small businesses are the economic engine driving our economy and people like these award winners are the spark plugs powering that engine."
