TRANSPORTATION TRAIL BLAZERS
Rodney E. Slater is the Former Secretary of Transportation. Slater earned his law degree from the University of Arkansas in 1980. While there, he served as president of the UA chapter of the Black American Law Students Association and the Student Bar.

Slater served as an assistant attorney general in the litigation division under Attorney General Steve Clark for the next two years. In 1982, he joined Clinton's staff, also serving as his deputy campaign manager in 1984 and 1986, and served several roles supporting the governor's office and Clinton's presidential campaign in the years that followed.

In 1987 Rodney E. Slater was appointed to the Arkansas Highway Commission by Clinton. He marked his place in history as the youngest commissioner and the first African American to serve on that state board. Just five years later, he was elected chairman. In 1993, President Clinton named Slater director of the Federal Highway Administration, making him the agency's first African American administrator in its hundred-year history. After four years of service, President Clinton named Slater Secretary of Transportation in 1997, a title he held until 2001. Slater was the second Black U.S. Secretary of Transportation.

Slater's launched the Garrett A. Morgan Technology and Transportation Education Program in 1997. The program's initial intent was to prepare youth to become the future transportation workforce, attract youth to transportation careers, and provide them with the needed skills through mentorship and tutoring.
