Sheridan 84 (civil engineering technology) was
a co-recipient of the Douglas Zefting Memorial Award presented
by the American Public Works Association in January in Rochester.
The award is presented each year to a public works official who
demonstrates outstanding and meritorious achievements. Sheridan,
who works in the Rochester region of the New York State Department
of Transportation, was instrumental in designing a program that
allows local municipalities to administer transportation projects
using federal funding, a task only done by the state in the past.
Sheridan and a colleague
have helped local governments in Rochester and the seven surrounding
counties to improve their transportation networks, working on
more than $80 million worth of projects.
