The National Wood Flooring Association has inducted South Lynn of Universal Floors into its Legacy Scholarship program through the NWFA Education and Research Foundation. The NERF Legacy Scholarship program honors individuals who made significant contributions throughout their lives to advance the wood flooring industry.
“South Lynn started his wood flooring career in 1952 working for Suburban Floors. After just nine months, he set out on his own starting his own company, Universal Floors, in 1953,” the NWFA said in a statement. “Universal Floors quickly earned a reputation for high-quality work, installing and finishing floors in the White House during every administration from Eisenhower to the present. In 2001, he received the NWFA Industry Leadership Award.”
NERF was established to provide industry research and educate future generations of wood flooring professionals. The NERF Legacy Scholarship program helps the NWFA keep training costs to a minimum for participants.
