BVEDC Recognitions

Over the past several years, the Brazos Valley Economic Development Corporation has been honored with a series of awards from state, national and international organizations. These recognitions reflect not only the work of the BVEDC, but also its community partners in making the Brazos Valley an even more prosperous place to work and live.
