The Professional Truck Driver Institute has presented the eighth annual Lee J. Crittenden Memorial Award to Lana Batts, managing partner of Transport Capital Partners. The award honors the person who has done the most to advance the ideals and goals of PTDI.
While Batts served as president of the Truckload Carriers Association, the organization took over management of PTDI. At that time, 19 schools had PDTI-certified courses. By early 2000, when Batts left TCA, 71 schools had certified courses.
Batts was recognized at TCA’s recent annual meeting in Orlando, Fla.
