​ Blake Burgess, the owner of Ace Hardware in York, has been named as this year’s recipient for the PBL D. Mark Moore Entrepreneurial Spirit Award.

Several years ago, the York College chapter of Phi Beta Lambda (a business education organization related to Future Business Leaders of America) partnered with the York Chamber of Commerce to establish the award. It was created in 2015 after Dr. Moore (a teacher and mentor at York College) passed away.
