LAS VEGAS. The Professional Truck Driver Institute, Inc. (PTDI) presented the seventh annual Lee J. Crittenden Memorial Award to Herb Fotheringham, PTDI certification specialist and consultant, during the March 7 general session of the Truckload Carriers Association's (TCA) annual convention here.

The award is given to the person who has done the most to advance the ideals and goals of the Professional Truck Driver Institute. PTDI is a nonprofit organization sponsored by the trucking industry to advance truck driver training, proficiency, safety, and professionalism.

"Herb's dedication, support and loyalty to PTDI have been demonstrated through and through to the Institute - its schools both current and future," said Ray Haight, president & COO of MacKinnon Transport, Inc., chairman of PTDI, who presented the award. "His patience and availability is a glowing example of the 110% commitment to all who have worked with him - and he more than deserves this award."

Fotheringham was unable to be in Las Vegas for the presentation of the award so it was accepted by his colleague Don Hess, director of transportation and public safety programs for John Wood Community College.
