State Sen. Tom Berryhill presented Fresno State’s Lyles Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship with a Legislative Resolution for its 10th anniversary. He traveled to Fresno on Sept. 16 to present the resolution and commend the center for its role in advancing entrepreneurship in the Central Valley.

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to honor and call attention to such an amazing institution right here in the heart of the Central Valley,” said Berryhill (R-Twain Harte). “The Lyles Center has been a center for innovation and collaboration among community leaders for 10 years, making for a much better now and a brighter future. I extend my best wishes for their continued success.”

Fresno State President Joseph I. Castro was in attendance to accept the award alongside Dr. Scott Moore, interim executive director of the Lyles Center.

“It was an honor to receive the commendation from Senator Berryhill on the Lyles Center’s 10th anniversary,” Castro said. “I’m very proud of the Lyles Center’s work in supporting Fresno State students, K-12 students in our region and community members as they pursue their bold dreams of innovation and entrepreneurship.”

Moore stressed the vital role the Lyles Center staff has had on the success of the center and all of its programs. “The Lyles Center staff is the reason the center is so successful,” Moore said. “Without their hard work, none of the center’s success would be possible. I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years holds.”

The resolution was sponsored by local legislators, including Berryhill, Sen. Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) and assemblymembers Joaquin Arambula (D-Kingsburg) and Jim Patterson (R-Fresno).
