Norman Pulliam of Spartanburg, chair of the S.C. Natural Resources Board, was recently awarded the Neville Holcombe Distinguished Citizenship Awards at the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce’s Centennial Celebration.
Pulliam’s award recognized his economic and community investment across Spartanburg County, including his work with the S.C. School for the Deaf and the Blind and the S.C. Department of Natural Resources.
Among other volunteer activities, Pulliam served as a member of the S.C. School for the Deaf and the Blind’s board of commissioners for two decades, including 13 years as its chairman. He later joined the board of the Walker Foundation and continued to serve the students of the school.
In 2017, Pulliam was named chairman of the S.C. Natural Resources Board, which oversees the S.C. Department of Natural Resources, following years of service as both a board member and its vice chairman.
“Norman has spent a lifetime helping others,” said Herald-Journal Publisher Kevin Drake. “Through his commitment to nonprofits, his passionate business leadership and tireless work chairing the SCDNR Board, Norman has made South Carolina a better place for all of us.”
