The winners of the Transportation Roadeo, an annual event conducted by the Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency, have been released with Warren County resident Holly Grissom claiming the top prize.
The event was held April 16 at the central office of UCHRA with numerous transit drivers from the Upper Cumberland area participating. 
“The purpose of the organized event is to provide an opportunity for transit operators to demonstrate road and passenger safety skills and knowledge,” said Phyllis Bennett, UCHRA executive director.  “Participants complete an on-site driving of an obstacle course that teaches new or reinforces existing safety procedures. The goal of UCHRA is to provide training to enhance staff performance and to give recognition to staff for a job well done.”
Prizes were donated by various vendors who partner with UCHRA with Firestone Complete Auto Care donating a set of tires for the transit operator receiving first place.
Grissom advances to the State Roadeo competition held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Tennessee Public Transportation Association which will be held in Chattanooga in November. She will be accompanied to the State Roadeo by Phil Thomas, first place winner in the 30-foot bus category. 
The winner of the statewide event will be competing in the national competition held in the late spring of 2012.
