The Tribal Excellence Awards are presented annually during the Wisconsin Tribal Transportation Conference (WTTC) and this year, on October 29, LCO Development received the WTTC Tribal Excellence Award for Achievement.
LCO Development Director Alan Johnson, LCO TGB members Tweed Shuman and Gary “Little Guy” Cause and Marie Kuykendall, LCO Transportation Director, traveled to Green Bay to accept the award.
Little Guy said the enterprise earned this award because of the hard work and dedication of its employees.
“LCO Development is working and they are making money. We appreciate everything you guys are doing,” Little Guy said. “They are the oldest operating tribal DBA in Wisconsin at 45 years. That’s something to be proud of.”
In a letter to LCO Development announcing the award, The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) and the Inter-Tribal Task Force (ITTF) stated they are proud of the successful collaborations they have facilitated in the areas of transportation safety improvements, historic preservation, and consultations in business and labor development.
“The Tribal Transportation Excellence Award was created to honor our partners. Your work has played a vital role in this success. This award recognizes your valuable contributions and efforts, and to thank you for your work,” the letter stated.
“Congratulations to Development and everyone involved in winning this award,” Little Guy said.
LCO Tribal Chairman Louis Taylor added LCO Development is doing excellent work in all of their projects.
