An employee of the Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency (UCHRA) recently received national accreditation for completing a course focused on leadership development. Holly Montooth, Mobility Manager in the transportation department at UCHRA, has been with the agency for 18 years.
Last year, Montooth entered a yearlong Community Transportation Association of America Emerging Leaders Academy. The academy is designed for transportation system employees who have shown promise as a future leader through these major areas:
• Approach to work tasks and fellow employees
• Understanding of issues that impact community and public transportation
• Demonstrated ability to lead
• Embrace of principled, ethical leadership and service to the community
Montooth successfully completed the course and was one of 24 transportation professionals from across the country who graduated in May.
