Community Spotlight
Touch down at Weldon High School

The Halifax County community has welcomed Roseburg and the Roanoke Valley Lumber team with open arms and generous hearts. Our team has had the pleasure of attending and participating in dozens of community events and meetings while getting to know the local area. We were excited to support the Weldon High School football team recently with a booth and refreshments. Football coach Steven Brickell does double duty, serving as our Operations Logistics Manager when he isn’t guiding players to success.

Go, Chargers!


Team Spotlight

Roseburg’s summer internship program has a simple goal: Provide college students with meaningful work experience and, if all goes well, hire them after graduation. It’s a grown-your-own approach to recruitment and development that has paid off well for the company.

Roanoke Valley Lumber’s own Plant Manager Adam Reed first joined the company as a summer intern. Over the summer, the lumber team and our Roanoke Rapids timberland group hosted four outstanding interns, who completed real-world work projects that boost their know-how and their resumes.

We hope to see them again as they complete their schooling and launch their careers.
