STRIDE Research Coordinator Wins CUTC Administrative Leadership Award
The STRIDE Center's Research Coordinator, Ines Aviles-Spadoni, was the recipient of the 2016 CUTC-ARTBA Administrative Leadership Award, which was presented to her this January during TRB at the Annual CUTC Awards Banquet in Washington, D.C. The award was a surprize to Aviles-Spadoni who did not expect such an honor.
“It was so nice to be recognized along with Norman Mineta and having Secretary Foxx as our speaker," she said. "It’s a moment I’ll never forget."
With the long-term transportation bill finally passed, that evening was the icing on the cake. USDOT Secretary Anthony Foxx was the event’s keynote speaker and Norman Mineta (former U.S. Secretary of Transportation) received a Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Administrative Leadership Award recognizes outstanding leadership contributions to the transportation field by non-academic appoinments.
