Davis receives Long Leaf Pine Award

Nash County Commissioners took a moment to recognize Chairman Robbie Davis before getting down to business on Monday.

Davis was recognized with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine Award at Monday's regular business meeting.

The Order of the Long Leaf Pine is one of the most prestigious awards given by the Governor of North Carolina. The award is given to those with exemplary service to the State of North Carolina as well as to their communities.

Former Lt. Governor Jim Gardner presented Davis with the award, which was actually approved by then Governor Pat McCrory.

Gardner said he was honored to be able to present Davis with the award.

"This is the highest award given by the governor of North Carolina," he said.

Davis said he was pleased to receive the award but added, he's not one that cares to be in the limelight.

"I'd rather stay in the back room and get the work done," Davis said.

"(But) I appreciate this more than anyone realizes," Davis added.

Davis thanked his family, fellow commissioners, Nash County staff and friends for their dedication to Nash County and the work they do.

Davis said he was thankful to work alongside a board that got along, even when they didn't always agree. Davis also mentioned the late Billy Morgan, who passed away earlier this year, and his words of advice when Davis first came on the board.

"When you have a vote the best thing for you to do is forget that vote and come back and be friends," Davis said Morgan told him.

Davis also thanked Gardner for being at the ceremony, adding that Gardner was a mentor to him.
