Hotel/motel owner Abdul Lala of Meridian was honored with the 2012 Hartley D. Peavey Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence.

"It gives me a lot of excitement to do a lot more for the city because the city has been so good to me," says Lala, "and my investment has worked so well in the city, and I'm really proud of being a resident of the City and Lauderdale County."

Lala moved to Meridian over 30 years ago to work as a chemist.

The presentation Tuesday night precedes the EMBDC's Main Event, set for Wednesday at the old Goody's location at Bonita Lakes Mall.

Businesses invite the community to come and see what they have to offer.

The Main Event is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
