Judy Petry Named Woman of the Year by LRIW

Judy Petry of Elk City, Oklahoma, was recently named woman of the year by the League of Railway Industry Women. Read story here.

Aside: A few decades ago, I was head of the state's rail planning division of the Oklahoma Dept of Transportation. I was also the total staff. In spite of my best efforts, I didn't manage to save many rail lines so I don't admit it too often. At Gov David Boren's request, I agreed to be the initial state rail planner (with emphasis on planner); I was followed in the position by former State legislator Jim Townsend -- who knew a lot more about railroads that me.

Anyway, congrats, Judy!

    Thank you for your kind words. I consider it a great honor to have been given this award and to have the priviledge of working in the rail industry.
