“I’m elated to receive such an award” says Mr. York. He adds, “…it took me by surprise and am completely overwhelmed…”
Mr. York has dedicated his life to music and educating the youth of hundreds of communities all across Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas. His passion for music is a driving force in his life as an educator and business owner. It is his passion for music that was the impetus for opening The Music Store (his retail business) ¬almost 40 years ago. And it’s that same passion that drives the success of The Music Store every day.
