Valdosta - A South Georgia man is recognized for his commitment to the business community.
The Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce gave its Champion of Business award to Bubba Campbell Wednesday. Campbell is the manager of Belk's Department Store and helped start the initiative for Georgia's Sales Tax Holiday.
"Florida had it and the border counties along the Florida line were competing with Florida during the sales tax holiday and I felt like we were missing some business," said Campbell.
Campbell served as chairman of the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce in 2002.
