Dr. Lai was nominated by the Penn State Small Business Development Center through Linda Feltman, our Small Business Adviser. This is just the latest thing she has done to help us. Over the years, she has been such a great help and always believed in us. We really, truly appreciate it!
We received some media mentions as well. The Team Pennsylvania Foundation web site had an article in their news section and Pennsylvania Business Central wrote an article about Dr. Lai and the award she won.
