Edgecombe County board Chairman Leonard Wiggins was honored on Friday as about 100 people gathered on a blustery fall day to observe the unveiling of signage designating the entrance to the Kingsboro Business Park as Leonard Wiggins Parkway. Its highway designation is SR 1376.

Wiggins, who was sworn in as a county commissioner on Dec. 2, 1996, and has served as chairman of the board since Dec. 1, 2008, was honored for his leadership in the ongoing effort to develop the 2,000-acre facility that is considered to be the Cadillac of industrial sites in the Southeast.
