Board to honor employees for longevity, retirement
The Idaho Transportation Board and ITD leaders will celebrate the professional achievements of Headquarters employees during the semiannual Employee Service Awards presentation March 19.
Employees who reach employment milestones, from five years to 40 years and those who retired during the last six months of 2012, will be recognized during the board meeting in Boise. The ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. A reception, sponsored by DoRolCo, is planned in the Headquarters lobby immediately afterward.
The ceremony honors eight recent retirees who collectively represent 210 years employment, or an average of 26.25 years per employee. Terry McAdams leads the group, having worked 44 years before retiring from the department last fall. Bob Linkhart and Doug Benzon completed 38 years and Helen Jones followed with 35.
ITD's newest employees – those who completed five years of service, represent the largest group to be honored at 14, followed closely by those who reached 25 years (13). Nine celebrate 15 years of employment, and two – Peggy Koomler and Kevin McCulley – reached the 40-year plateau.
