LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) - One small business in Lowndes County was honored in a big-way Thursday morning.

The Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce announced the 2009 Small Business of the Year at a breakfast ceremony.

The honor went to architectural design firm Ellis, Ricket & Associates.  The company designs energy efficient buildings.

Ellis, Ricket & Associates has served Valdosta for fifty-three years. They say the attitude of their staff is what makes them stand out.

"I've been told in the past that you're professional first, but you're providing a service as well," says Ken Ricket.  "We think we have a great deal of staff that take the positive attitude and provide a full professional service."

Small businesses make up 80-percent of the Chamber's membership. The Chamber of Commerce says those businesses play a crucial role in Lowndes County's economic success.
