The award was presented last week as part of activities surrounding Entrepreneurship Week.
The award went to Pitt-Bradford alumni Donald Kemick and Jeremy Callinan, owners of Protocol 80, a firm specializing in Web design and application development services.
“Your creativity, innovation and hard work truly embody the importance of celebrating entrepreneurial excellence,” read the certificate presented at a dessert reception Thursday.
“By providing computer-based consulting services as well as conducting training at the Pitt-Bradford Small Business Institute, you have become a business leader for today’s entrepreneurs in the Bradford area and throughout the region.”
In addition to their work with Protocol 80, Kemick and Callinan teach for-credit business classes and noncredit classes through Outreach Services. They have also donated their time to several university committees.
