William Carey University held its annual luncheon Wednesday afternoon. The university holds the luncheon every year to hand out the Small Business Leadership award.
The award has been given out every year since 1990, and this year's recipient is Brad Pittman. Brad is well known around the community as the owner of Columbia Block and Brick.
The keynote speakers were Kevin Fitzpatrick and David Cullop.
The pair were in agreement when Fitzpatrick said, “Business is more about the bottom line dollar. It's about really changing people's lives every day. You have an opportunity to do that, and as a business it's kind of a responsibility to do that.“
Others in attendance included university President Tommy King, and the Executive Vice President of the ADP Valencia Williamson.
