Wall of Honor Dedicated to Veterans

Wall of Honor Dedication

The Northeast District held a dedication for the "Wall of Honor" located in the district office. Sixteen employees and retirees who are veterans attended the special tribute honoring them for their service to our country. 

The "Wall of Honor"currently features employees and their family members who are serving in the military. With the invitation, many more employees and retirees shared their photos and ranks, and these will be added to the Wall.

Thank you to all Veterans!

Team Spirit a Success with Area Schools

On Nov. 3, teams of students and advisors from the surrounding area participated in the Team Spirit Traffic Safety
Leadership Training Conference at the National Guard Armory in Hannibal.

Approximately 68 students and advisors from Monroe City, South Shelby, Mark Twain, Van-Far and Palmyra High
Schools participated in the Team Spirit workshop sponsored by MoDOT's Highway Safety Division and the Northeast Coalition for Roadway Safety. The workshop is designed to teach students to take leadership responsibility and set good examples with their fellow peers about staying away from drugs and alcohol, and supporting seat belt use.

Team Spirit also teaches students about the dangers of drinking and driving, texting and driving, not using a safety belt
and other traffic issues. The participants worked as groups in educational and motivational workshops and prevention
program activities, and participated in leadership and team-building exercises. Students also heard first hand about the consequences from accidents and poor driving decisions and habits from Pam Holt, a registered nurse with Mercy Hospitals Trauma Services in Springfield (pictured left below) and VIP speakers Penny Lorenz, assistant director, Chad Burton and Kayle Denny for ThinkFirst Missouri.

During this conference, the high school students and advisors actively participated as school teams receiving educational
training, and were challenged to develop individualized team action plans to be implemented within their own schools
upon their return. Paula Gough, district engineer accompanied the South Shelby students which included her daughter, Emma, to the session (Paula and Emma are pictured in the bottom right in tie-dye).
