The Los Rios Community College District's Center for International Trade Development has been selected by the U.S. Department of Commerce to receive a "Presidential E" award for export service.

The award recognizes persons, firms, or organizations that contribute significantly to increased U.S. exports.

The award will be presented today during ceremonies at the Commerce Department in Washington D.C., with President Barack Obama expected to attend.

The CITD provides trade services as part of a network of centers at community colleges statewide.
