Congrats to Transportation, Technology, Math and Science Academy students!

The sixth cohort of students recently finished the Transportation, Technology, Math and Science Academy at Donnelly College. As the Kansas host site for the National Summer Transportation Institute, the program promotes awareness of educational and career opportunities in the transportation industry among disadvantaged and at-risk middle and high school students.

At the closing ceremony, four student groups — air, rail, roads, water — presented their final projects. The students also heard from representatives from the Kansas City Chapter of the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) who spoke about the importance of higher education and the many career opportunities in transportation.
