The recognition was presented to the agency during the Second Annual MTO Summit held in Austin, Texas on Tuesday, September 1, 2015.
“I would like to thank and congratulate our entire MTO staff and our supporting staff who played major roles in Project Amistad being recognized by the State of Texas with this great honor,” said Xavier Bañales, Project Amistad Chief Executive Officer.
