Golden LEAF Approves Grant To Help Bring Drug Company To Wilson

Posted February 5, 2004

— Members of the Golden LEAF Foundation approved a grant Thursday to put up $1 million to help lure a pharmaceutical company to Wilson.

The unidentified company could bring up to 300 jobs to an area hard hit by layoffs.

The Wilson Economic Development Council is also offering the company $7 million in incentives.

Some of that money could come from tobacco settlements.
