County Council Chair, Calvin S. Hawkins, II, says the recognition Prince George’s County MBE’s received during the awards ceremony, and their successful completion of the program, is proof positive that our local businesses are ready to meet and exceed expectations.

“Local, small, women and minority -owned businesses are the job generators and innovators in Prince George’s County, and it is important for these entrepreneurs to have the tools required to succeed and share in our County’s business growth and prosperity.   I congratulate each of the honorees on   successful completion of the mentorship program and look forward to  continued success in the years ahead for our local businesses and local economy.”
