Hometown Connections
April 2004

TARBORO, NC - In a small town, family connections and personal ties are expected. Tarboro, with a population just under 11,500, is no exception. Incorporated in 1760 in the state of North Carolina, Tarboro has a lot to be proud of. Recently, two business people with Tarboro connections were honored for their dedication and high level of service, adding more laurels to the North Carolina town's crown.

Janice Bryant Howroyd, CEO of ACT1, and Reg Holden, Supply Chain Manager for Delta Air Lines, were both recipients of Delta's annual Supplier Diversity Star Awards. These awards are given on a yearly basis to suppliers and employees who exemplify excellence, innovation and commitment to outstanding service. Howroyd was born and raised in Tarboro, while Holden's father recently moved to the North Carolina town.

Exceptional service and the best business relationships aren't always found in big cities or even in big corporations. Partnerships can cross company lines and begin in something simpler, like a common hometown tie. The chance meeting at an awards ceremony helped two hometowners form a lasting partnership, showing how important local people are, and how Tarboro's values and ethics help to bring that personal touch.
