IAM Members at work
District W24 applauds C-TRAN and the members that work there.
October 3, 2018,
C-TRAN was honored to receive an award during Clark County's
18th Annual Celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
During the event, C-TRAN was recognized as Public Employer of the Year.
For many years, C-TRAN has partnered with
local organizations to provide job
opportunities for workers with special needs. Our janitor/hostler group -- IAM Members Cristi Morrow,
Doug McPherson, Shawn Lorang and Karl Clark -- are among the most highly regarded
members of our Maintenance team. We're proud to call them our colleagues, and proud
to see these outstanding employees recognized for the outstanding work they do.
Many thanks to Clark County and other partners who continue to advocate for this great cause.
Please enjoy the pictures from that night, I think everyone was having a good time.
When asked what her favorite thing about working
for C-TRAN is, Morrow emphasizes that she loves to help other employees. She
also loves cleaning new buses
and attending various C-TRAN events. Morrow has a tremendous amount of pride in what she does. She rides the bus to work almost every day, and wants to make
sure the buses are clean for the drivers and riders. Every week, Job Coach April Burton visits during the graveyard shift to check in and help if needed.
. “They are
probably the most committed people we have in our workforce,” says fleet
maintenance supervisor Kory Liedtke.
“They actually care. They look at us as compadres, and I look at them the same way. They lighten the mood around here.”
