Month after month, The Farmville Enterprise features businesses recognized by the Farmville Chamber of Commerce.

This month, the newspaper can count itself among the list of award winners.

Judy Gidley, director of the chamber, recently presented the August Merchant of the Month award to editor Angela Harne.

The Farmville Enterprise, in production for 106 years, publishes on Wednesdays and serves western Pitt County and the communities of Farmville, Falkland, Fountain and Walstonburg.

“My staff and I truly enjoy serving the community and sharing our residents’ stories,” Harne said. “This is not our newspaper; it is theirs.”

A.C. Monk, John T. Thorne, R.L. Davis, John R. Davis, G.A. Jones and W.A. Pollard of the Farmville Publishing Co. started The Farmville Enterprise in 1910. In 1911, George Alexander Rouse began serving as the newspaper’s editor and, in 1947, James B. Hockaday took over as editor.

Hockaday purchased the newspaper from Rouse in 1956 and served as the publisher of the Farmville Enterprise until he retired in the early 1990s. Hockaday is listed as the newspaper’s publisher emeritus in each edition.

Today, the Farmville Enterprise is a publication of Cooke Communications of North Carolina LLC.

“Our staff is honored to be named Merchant of the Month for August,” Kyle Stephens, publisher of The Farmville Enterprise, said. “... We are extremely proud of this community and consider it a privilege to serve as your hometown newspaper.”

Gidley said Harne and the newspaper have been instrumental in helping the chamber become more visible and accessible to the business community.

“Most importantly, I worked to uplift and put the chamber on the right course, and this could not have been done without the relationship between the chamber and The Farmville Enterprise and its editor, Angela Harne,” Gidley said.
