Diane Duarte Receives State Star Award from SBDC

Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Financial Analyst Diane Duarte was presented the 2016 California State Star Award at the 36th Annual America’s SBDC Conference in Orlando, Florida.

The national organization annually recognizes SBDC personnel from each state that demonstrate exemplary work performance, significantly contributing to the organization’s economic development efforts, and showing a strong commitment to small business.

“When the call came for nominations for the 2016 award, Diane was a perfect choice,” said SBDC Regional Director Patrick Nye. “She has a tremendous commitment to helping the small businesses in our region succeed.”

Born and raised in Southern California, Duarte attended San Diego State University and worked for 15 years managing and reporting for U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Grants, U.S. Economic Development Administration Grants, and Community Development Loans before coming to Long Beach City College’s SBDC Lead Center in 2010 as grants senior accounting technician.
