Another Harbin Lumber team member also received recognition. Todd Lord, Harbin Lumber of Athens General Manager, was presented with the AAHBA 2018 Henry E. Wages Associate Member of the Year Award.

Wages Associate of the Year Award has been a dedicated member of our Association for many years,” said Stephanie Johnson, Executive Officer of AAHBA. “Todd Lord has contributed much time and energy to the AAHBA and has proven to be a member we can always call upon. His contributions and service to not just this association but the building industry have positively affected many! He is most deserving of this honor, and we want to thank him for all of the time and support that he willingly gives to our Association.”
Congratulations JR and Todd! We are very proud of you both!
