Penn State Harrisburg faculty member Richard R. Young has been awarded the National Defense Transportation Association’s (NDTA) Educator Distinguished Service Award.

A professor of supply chain management and director of Penn State Harrisburg's MBA program, Young was presented the award in recognition of his service and commitment to the NDTA, not only at the strategic level, but also as one of the core group of leaders who initiated and continues to execute the revitalization of the organization’s Central Pennsylvania Chapter.

As an educator, author, guest speaker, panelist, and moderator on transportation, distribution, and supply chain issues, Young has been active at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels. He serves as the local chapter’s chairman for the Education and Scholarship Committee and has been an active board member.

A government, industry, and education partnership, the NDTA supports, conducts, and assists programs of transportation education, scientific research, and development. These activities are carried out in coordination with private, industrial, educational and government agencies, and are designed to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of our transportation industry and enable it to meet national security needs.
