Nominations are now being accepted for the 2010 inductees into the Texas Transportation Hall of Honor, which acknowledges individuals who have played a pivotal role in Texas transportation. Established in January of 2000, there are currently 30 people inducted into the Hall of Honor.
“The Hall of Honor is intended to recognize the small group of people whose exceptional leadership and vision made possible the outstanding transportation system we enjoy in Texas today,” Dennis Christiansen, the director of the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) said. “Past, present and future Texans owe many thanks to these special individuals for the lasting impact they’ve had on our great state.”
The Texas Transportation Hall of Honor is located in the main conference room in TTI’s Gibb Gilchrist building in the Texas A&M University Research Park in College Station. The Hall is overseen by a five-member board comprised of senior transportation professionals with knowledge of the historical development of the transportation system in the state.
Each individual inducted into the Hall of Honor is recognized by a plaque engraved with that individual’s likeness.
Nominations for the 2010 honorees will be accepted through Oct. 1. To nominate an individual, visit http://tti.tamu.edu/about/hall-of-honor/call-for-nominations/.
