View from the Road - June 2015

This View from the Road comes out while we are celebrating the 70th Highway School here in Ithaca. We are giving a 60th Highway School attendance award to Dick Rudolph. His first School was also the first School after WWII in 1947! Even after he retired from being a Highway Superintendent he continued to attend the School. He understands that sharing his knowledge with younger attendees is a great way to continue technology and knowledge transfer. Go to your local events; you may have a good time, you may learn something new, or you may teach somebody else something they did not know. You might even do all three. How about that!
