MDOT recognized for support of military
JACKSON — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) has received the President’s Award from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).
MDOT’s participation in the Cell Phones for Soldiers program was saluted by AASHTO, along with Ruthann Vercher, who spearheaded the department’s efforts in supporting the project. Vercher serves as director of MDOT’s Facility and Records Management Division, and in Nov. 2008, the program was announced during a press conference held at MDOT’s administrative complex on North West Street in Jackson.
Within the first four months of the launch of MDOT’s program, more than 2,000 cell phones were collected and recycled. The donated phones are resold by the recycling company, with the proceeds going to purchase 60-minute calling cards for members of the U.S. military who are serving overseas.
