At a time when lives are restricted due to the global pandemic and many people are looking for ways to make a difference, The ATSS Foundation has an option.

The Foundation needs volunteers to help gather the names of men and women who lost their lives in work zone incidents so they can be honored by inclusion on the  National Work Zone Memorial.

“Families whose lives have been marked by work zone tragedies continue to need our help. One way to support them while maintaining social distancing and without even leaving your home is to help gather names of people who should be honored and remembered on the Memorial,” said Foundation Associate Director Lori Diaz.

A dozen years later, when Cameron sought to become the first one in her extended family to get a college degree, the dream might have been out of reach if it hadn’t been for the Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship offered by The American Traffic Safety Services Foundation.
