2017 Annual Awards


The WTS Metropolitan Phoenix Chapter Annual Awards Ceremony was held Feb. 25 at Warehouse 215 @ Bentley Projects. It was an exciting way to celebrate the culmination of 2016 and all of the Chapter's successes as well as recognize award and scholarship winners. Thank you to all who assisted, supported and attended the ceremony. We are honored that so many of you chose to attend. It was an exciting night with various individuals and organizations being recognized for how they advance and/or contribute to careers, innovation and diversity in transportation. Congratulations to all! 

The WTS Phoenix Chapter raised more than $500 via the evening's raffle. Thanks again to Karen Dada for donating her Heads-or-Tails raffle winnings back to the WTS Chapter!
