RideFinders Program Manager Recognized as TDM Unsung Hero

RideFinders Program Manager, Cherika Ruffin, was recently recognized by The Virginia Transit Association (VTA) as one of the recipients of the VTA’s Employee Unsung Hero - TDM. Ms. Ruffin was awarded the 2020 TDM Unsung Hero Award for her dedication and outstanding contributions to the organization by advancing organizational goals, developing organizational strategies and communicating to internal and external staff, stakeholders, customers and commuters alike. "I am truly honored to receive this recognition, but it's a team effort. I'm extremely proud of our team and hope to continue working with them for many years," Ms. Ruffin stated. During her sixteen (16) year tenure with RideFinders, while remaining in the background, she has continuously and consistently displayed notable work ethic and results that are truly exceptional and deserving of recognition. 

Due to COVID-19, the VTA Annual Awards Luncheon will be held in November where she will be presented with her award.
