KY LTAP Takes Top Prize in National Poster Contest

A poster session is held each year at the National LTAP/TTAP Conference.  This year the conference was held in Portsmouth, Virginia, and the poster theme was Innovation.  

We, Kentucky LTAP,  designed a poster which highlighted our newly released flagger video:
Flaggers: Guardians of the Work Zone.  The video was a joint effort between Kentucky LTAP and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. We were honored when our poster won first place!  

This innovative flagger video has been mailed to every city and county in Kentucky, so please look for yours to arrive in the mail soon.

Additional copies of the video are available for $15.  Please contact the library at 800-432-0719 to order yours today.

Long Time University of Kentucky Employee is Retiring
Sally Crouch recently announced her retirement from the University of Kentucky.  

Sally has been the "Road Warrior" for the Technology Transfer Program for the past 14 years.  She would often pull up to the T2 building on Monday where we would load her car up with workshop material.  She would spend the next few days traveling to workshops to coordinate on-site activities and return to the office on Friday to have her car unloaded.  

There is no doubt that T2 couldn't have offered the number of quality training classes that we did without her assistance.  

From everyone at the Technology Transfer Program, thank you Sally for your hard work and willingness to travel to all corners of the Commonwealth.  We wish you the best in your future endeavors.
