CINCINNATI, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LaVERDAD has been named Supplier of the Year by the South Central Ohio Minority Supplier Development Council (SCOMSDC) for its outstanding performance and achievements.

The award – which was presented on Veteran's Day at the SCOMSDC Gala in West Chester, OH – recognizes certified minority suppliers who have demonstrated outstanding quality and service over the life of the company, and is exemplified through their strong potential for expansion and development, regardless of the prevailing economic environment.  

"We are honored to have received this award for the second time in our firm's history, and especially honored to receive this recognition on Veteran's Day," said Mike Robinson, president of LaVERDAD.
