Only weeks before his retirement, Director Herb Richardson has been notified that he is the recipient of the 2006 Roy W. Crum Distinguished Service Award’one of the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) most prestigious honors. The Crum Award recognizes outstanding achievement in transportation research and will be presented at the Chairman’s Luncheon at the TRB Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. Jan. 24, 2007.
“The recipients of the Crum Award are among the most influential leaders in transportation research,” says TRB Associate Executive Director Suzanne Schneider. “Herb is a standout in that group, and he is most deserving of this recognition.”
The Crum Award was named after the director of the Highway Research Board (now TRB), who served in that position from 1928 until his death in 1951. Crum was the posthumous recipient of the Highway Research Board Distinguished Service Award in the year of his death. The award was renamed in his honor the following year.
“I am honored and humbled by my selection for this prestigious award from the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies,” says Richardson. “To count my name among past recipients…giants in the field of transportation…is truly a highlight of my career.”
