Davida Martin, who retired as Forsyth County attorney on June 30, was honored last Thursday during a county briefing with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, which is among the most prestigious awards conferred by the governor for exemplarily service to the state.
She was also honored with a proclamation from the county commissioners.
After the briefing, a retirement celebration was held that was attended by Martinâ€™s family, including her husband, N.C. A&T State University Chancellor Harold Martin, along with colleagues and friends.
Her county co-workers presented her with a buggy filled with beach toys for her grandkids to enjoy.
Martin is succeeded as county attorney by Gordon Watkins, a longtime assistant county attorney.
