After the business expo closed tonight, the Abilene Chamber of Commerce presented two awards to Abilene businesses.

The Small Business Award was presented to Bill Reed Distributing. The beer distributor began in Stamford in 1965, but moved to Abilene in 1980 and has been expanding ever since.

The Corporate Star Award was given to Blue Cross Blue Shield, the huge health insurance company.

Blue Cross Blue Shield has more than 1200 employees, which is nearly double what the southeast Abilene complex had when it opened in 1997.
