Central Office
Honoring Years of Service
Rich Tiemeyer
Being recognized for 40 years of dedicated service to MoDOT by Director Nichols are: Chief Counsel Rich Tiemeyer (top photo on left), Senior Structural Designer Ed Books (middle photo on left) and Senior Executive Assistant to the Director Sharon Monroe (bottom photo on left).
Earlier this month, 68 Central Office employees were honored at a Service Awards luncheon to celebrate their careers with MoDOT. Keynote speaker Steve Miller, chairman of the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission, talked about employee’s commitment and professionalism.

“As someone working in the private sector, I had preconceived notions of how state employees worked. Thank you for changing my perceptions and showing me what long-term public service can be. I am so impressed with the commitment and professionalism at MoDOT. As both the commission chair and as a Missourian I salute your dedication and truly appreciate the loyalty you demonstrate as public servants,” said Miller.

Assistant Chief Engineer Kathy Harvey emceed the event honoring the employees, who had a combined total of 1,655 years of dedicated service to the Department. Three of those employees, Chief Counsel Rich Tiemeyer, Senior Executive Assistant to the Director Sharon Monroe and Senior Structural Designer Ed Books, celebrated 40 year careers with MoDOT.

Director Nichols also addressed the group saying, “Thank you for your service. The bottom line here is our customers, and they benefit from the work you do. I am very proud of you and thank you for the value you place on safety as part of our team.”
