SCC Small Business Center Named Neighborhood Champion for Pilot Mountain


The Small Business Center at Surry Community College was designated as a Small Business Community Champion for 2021 by American Express. This designation is given to business associations and community organizations to spread awareness of the importance of shopping small to support small business.

This is the third year in a row that SCC’s Small Business Center has received this recognition. This year’s designation will allow the SBC to support Pilot Mountain. In previous years, they have supported the towns of Boonville and Elkin.

This recognition comes leading up to Small Business Saturday, being held on Saturday, Nov. 27. American Express Neighborhood Champions will work nationwide to build excitement about shopping locally within their communities.

Mark Harden, Director of the Small Business Center at SCC, said: “We will receive various banners, signs and other marketing material from American Express that will be shared with Pilot Mountain for use in leading up to Small Business Saturday. It’s a pleasure to serve the many communities in Surry and Yadkin counties.”
