Written by  Friday, 18 January 2013 12:19

Devra Walker was named the 2013 Business Leader of the Year at Thursday’s annual meeting of the Statesboro-Bulloch County Chamber of Commerce held in the Nessmith-Lane Continuing Education Building at Georgia Southern University.  She and her husband Lindsay own five locations of Walker Pharmacy as well as several other businesses.


Walker said she was honored to receive the award but there were many others in the audience who were more deserving.  She said the success of Walker Pharmacy should be given to the employees.


Darron Burnette, second vice chair of the Chamber of Commerce, introduced her by saying  “The 2013 Business Leader of the Year exemplifies the highest standards of service and a desire to continue to advance and improve the economic climate of Bulloch County.  She is known for her integrity in her business and personal life, her character above reproach … and her service to others in the community,”


Other businesses the Walkers own are Lil Doses, a children’s special store, and The Laundry Mat across from Walker Pharmacy on Northside Drive East.


In other business Keely Fennel was named the 2013 Chamber board chairman.  Frank Fortune presented a video featuring the Chamber’s achievements over the past year.
