HART High Five: Award Winners

It's High Five Friday! In this version of HART High Five we're looking at recent HART award wins.


Congratulations to Harold Ward, who will receive the Florida Public Transportation Association's Bus Mechanic of the Year - 2nd Place Award. Mr. Ward will receive his award during the FPTA Annual Conference on October 18 in Tampa.  High five! 


Congratulations to James Chapman, who will receive the Florida Public Transportation Association's Bus Operator of the Year - 2nd Place Award. Mr. Chapman will also receive his award on home turf during the FPTA Annual Conference.  High five!

HART accepting the AdWheel Grand Award!
The HART Marketing Department recently received national industry recognition for our Black History Month awareness campaign, It All Started on a Bus.... This campaign honored local Black community leaders and celebrated the role that public transportation played in the Civil Rights Movement.
The AdWheel awards honor American Public Transportation Association (APTA) members’ marketing and communications efforts, each year. Awards are presented in the following main media categories: print, electronic, campaigns, and special events.

HART received the Grand Award, which is selected from the first place winners in our group (agencies with 4 million - 20 million passenger trips annually). 

If you've followed this blog since the beginning of the year, you've probably seen some elements of this campaign.  High five!

The Graphics Man That Can 
Graphic Designer Kirk Mieczkowski recently won two
American Graphic Design Awards in the Advertising category for Spring STAY-cation and Community Outreach Display marketing materials. The pieces were selected from more than 10,000 entries nationwide. Winning entries from each category were published in the Graphic Design USA Design Annual, a 250-page special edition magazine, which credited Kirk and HART. This is the fourth consecutive year that we have brought home this award. High five!

Oh to be Loved...

HART recently recognized 45+ outstanding employees from a mixture of departments at a bi-annual luncheon.  Honors received included Employees of the Month/Quarter(s), Longevity (25 and 30 years of service) and HART Star awards, which are given to employees who went far beyond their job duties. 

What does it take to be Employee of the Month?

Employees of the Month are honored for their outstanding performance, professionalism, and dedication to HART and most importantly, the community.

Thanks to all the award winners for their great service to HART!

Make a Mental Note 

Make a note next time you're riding HART. If you see James Chapman (or any of the above) getting you to work, don't be afraid to give them a high five for a job well done!
