YORK, NE – The Nebraska Economic Developers Association (NEDA) announced that it has awarded the Professional of the Year Award to Lisa Hurley from York Development Corporation (YCDC).

Hurley has been recognized for her accomplishments and dedicated service to economic growth in the state of Nebraska. In her current position, Hurley has been involved in many notable accomplishments over the last few years.

“I am honored and humbled to receive this award,” says Hurley. “What means the most is I was nominated by my staff and executive board, and then selected by my peers. It was incredibly shocking and unexpected.”

The NEDA recognizes that its members work tirelessly to help their respective communities grow by increasing the economic position of the community’s residents by assisting their existing businesses to expand and new companies to locate within the community.
