PVPC is proud to announce that PVPC Senior Transportation Planner Jeff McCollough has been named a "Roads Scholar" for his succesful completion of the Baystate Roads Scholar Program out of the UMassAmherst Transportation Center.
McCollough was required to attend at least sever training workshops, consisting of a minimum of six hours of participation.
According to Associate Director Christopher J. Ahmadjian, PH.D., P.E., MBA, "Although the name 'Roads Scholar' is somewhat humorous and designed to catch attention, Mr. McCollough's accomplishment is very impressive because he has come to all of our workshops ready to learn with a genuine interest in improving operations within the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission. Jeff has shown us that he is a professional who is serious about furthering his education and improving the way he accomplishes his work".
McCollough has been a member of the PVPC Transportation Section since the early 1990's and focuses primarily on project design that ensures the safety of our Valley's bike riders.
