We are excited to announce the acquisition of Vision Engineering & Planning, a transportation planning and engineering DBE firm with offices in Columbia, MD and Atlanta, GA.
Congratulations to Sain’s Vice President/Organization Development, Becky White, and Senior Project Manager, Jeff Stephenson, on awards they received at the 40th Annual Alabama Section ITE Annual Meeting Banquet in early June.
Becky received the first and very prestigious 2011 Transportation Professional of the Year Award in “Recognition of Outstanding Contributions toward the Advancement of the Transportation Engineering Profession in Alabama.”
Becky was wondering why Sain principal and owner, Jim Meads, who knew about the award in advance, was so anxious for her husband to attend the meeting!
Becky has been active in ALSITE for about 20 years. Over that period of time she has seen many of Alabama’s best transportation engineers receive awards for their service to the profession and to the traveling public in Alabama.
“It is truly humbling to be honored in a similar way as these great individuals. I will never feel like I measure up to their example, but I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to try,” Becky said.
Jeff received a Special Citation for Meritorious Service for “dedicated and continuous service (2008-present) in the design and implementation of innovative newsletter, website, online registration, and electronic voting technologies for the Alabama Section.”
He was completely surprised by the award, especially since he’s the first to ever receive it. “It is a privilege to be able to contribute to ALSITE’s development and use of electronic technologies, and I am looking forward to continuing to serve ALSITE in the future.”
They are definitely not stopping with these awards! Jeff was also elected Secretary-Treasurer of Alabama Section ITE for 2013.
We are so proud of the leadership and initiative both Becky and Jeff have taken.
