Do you know a rising star in the railroad industry? If so, consider nominating him or her for recognition by Progressive Railroading magazine. We're soliciting nominations for our first "Rising Stars" recognition of up-and-coming leaders in the rail industry. We define a "Rising Star" as someone younger than 40 who already has made a positive impact on his or her company, organization, department or team, and is viewed by others as a future leader in the industry. Progressive Railroading editors will select 20 candidates and publish their profiles in the magazine's September 2013 issue.For more information, follow this link to the Rising Stars nomination form. The deadline to nominate someone is April 1.
I nominate Mr. Riley Edwards, Civil Engineering Lecturer at the University of Illinois (leads Railway research group) as a rising star in our industry.
In reply to Blaine Peterson:
Thanks for bringing Mr. Edwards to our attention, Blaine. Any additional information you can share about the work he does for the industry would be most appreciated.
