Five Under 45 Impact Awards

This was the first year that the York County Development Corporation (YCDC) and York News-Times (YNT) partnered to create the Five Under 45 Impact Awards. The awards were presented to five people under the age of 45 who have made an impact on their community through their work and volunteerism. This year’s five winners, announced Thursday night during the YCDC annual meeting, are Angie Berthold, Kirby Crawford, Christi Lones, Pepper Papineau and Taylor Siebert. 

YORK – The York County Development Corporation (YCDC) held its annual meeting Thursday night, March 14, and part of the evening was dedicated to honoring the first people to win the Five Under 45 Impact Awards.

Recognized for their efforts in business and in the community were Angie Berthold, Kirby Crawford, Christi Lones, Pepper Papineau and Taylor Siebert.

Outgoing YCDC President Amie Kopcho was thanked for her service and Matt Spanjers became the new YCDC president.

Other board officers this year are Jim Ulrich, vice-president; Daryl Wilton, treasurer; Eric Montgomery, secretary; and Steve Eckman, assistant secretary.

Spanjers thanked all the members of YCDC, including those who have joined in this past year. He also remembered two very involved and longtime members of the organization who passed away this past year – Don Freeman and Don Witte.

Kopcho talked about the accomplishments from the last year (in which the YCDC was involved), which included the new Vistas at Meadow Grove, the Rural Workforce Housing Fund, Nutrition Services’ new warehouse, the International Economic Development Council Special Partnership Award for Education and the production of virtual reality videos in York County.
