As Chairman of the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce, John Jaros presented the 2016 Outstanding Citizen of the Year Award to Leon R. Spencer, Jr. at the organization’s 50th Annual Gala on March 24 at Longwood Gardens.
“Leon Spencer is a gentleman, a community volunteer and a class act as well,” said Jaros. “I couldn’t think of a better recipient of the award this year than Leon. His acceptance speech was moving.”
Spencer’s many leadership roles in Chester County include mayor of Kennett Square, president of the board of Chester County Intermediate Unit, vice president of the Kennett Square Borough Council, and vice president of the Kennett Consolidated School Board, among others.
