NC Cotton Grower Receives High Honor for Lifetime of Community Service
Cotton growers are an integral part of their communities, as proved by North Carolina cotton grower David Burns. On June 16, 2018, David Burns was presented with the Longleaf Pine Award. Bestowed by The Order of the Long Leaf Pine Society, it is one of the most prestigious awards conferred by the Governor of North Carolina. It is awarded to persons for exemplary service to the State of North Carolina and their communities that is above and beyond the call of duty, and which has made a significant impact and strengthened North Carolina.
