Y-12 recently honored six small businesses for their exceptional contributions to Y-12’s missions during Fiscal Year 2011. In addition, two Y-12 employees also were acknowledged for their role as small-business advocates.
During the annual Socioeconomic Programs Awards reception, Y-12 highlighted the valuable role small businesses and entrepreneurs play in Y-12’s transformation from the nation’s 20th century Cold War nuclear weapons complex into a 21st century nuclear security enterprise.
