Davidson Lumber earns accolades

The Southern Upsher Business Association (SUBA) awarded “Business of the Year” honors to Davidson Lumber Co., of Kanawha Head, W. Va.

According to the Record Delta newspaper, SUBA Treasurer Wane Strader presented the award with the following introduction: “The business SUBA is honoring tonight is an excellent example of entrepreneurship born of necessity,” he said. “It all started when a young man lost his job, and instead of looking elsewhere for work, decided to go into business for himself at home, which a creative person today can do easier with modern technology, but was more difficult over 50 years ago.” 

Jack Davidson accepted the award on behalf of his father Buy Davidson, who could not attend.
