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.
