Shirley McCall, coordinator of the Transportation and Technology Academy at Francis L. Cardozo Senior High School, Washington, D.C., has been selected as the recipient of the Transportation Research Board's 2004 Sharon D. Banks Award for Innovative Leadership in Transportation.


McCall was instrumental in founding the "TransTech" Academy at Cardozo in 1991, and has worked tirelessly since then to sustain and expand this innovative program.


The award, which will be presented during the Chairman's Luncheon at the TRB 83rd Annual Meeting, honors the memory of Sharon D. Banks, who was general manager of AC Transit, Oakland, Calif., from 1991 to 1999 and who chaired the TRB Executive Committee in 1998. She died in 1999.


The award recognizes individuals whose accomplishments exemplify Banks' caring nature and depth of character by making a significant difference in the lives of those who use, deliver or support transportation services.
