Albany - Small businesses are the backbone of a community. The Albany area Chamber of Commerce recognized them today at the Rise N Shine breakfast.

The Small Business of the year award went to JLA Global, a company that tests the safety and performance of food and beverage ingredients and products. The corporate headquarters are in Albany, but they have six other locations throughout the world. Ellen Wilson says, "This is huge, because we're a very small business and we're family oriented and to win this in the community is just a really big honor for us."

Graceway Recovery, a non-profit was also recognized for its role in the community. Liz Dixon, Development Director says, "We're so grateful to the community of Albany, the businesses and individuals, faith communities have just really embraced our mission to help hurting women suffering from addiction."

Second District Congressman Sanford Bishop was given the Spirit of Enterprise Award for his support of small businesses in Washington.
