ST. PAULS — A St. Pauls business man recently was named a trailblazer by Business North Carolina Magazine.

Joe Williams, 37, is the owner and pharmacy manager of Brisson Drugs on Broad Street in St. Pauls. Williams was one of 22 young, small-town business men and women featured in the September issue.
