The Blowing Rock Civic Association announced the first recipient of The Paul H. Broyhill Community Service Award at its annual meeting September 10th, held via Zoom.

David T. Goodson was honored with the award for his help in correcting issues he saw with the just completed Valley Boulevard project, US 321 passing through Blowing Rock.

David Goodson owns Goodson and Associates, a Wake Forest NC business dealing with horticulture for a wide range of clients.

Chairman George Wilcox said that the award was recently established to recognize outstanding work by a citizen to enhance the life in the community of Blowing Rock, N.C., and will be a feature of the Annual Membership Meeting of the Blowing Rock Civic Association.

Wilcox said the award is named for “One of the greatest supporters of Blowing Rock and the High Country, Paul H. Broyhill.”
