Two Metro Transit employees were recognized this week by the Met Council's Transportation Committee as part of the Awarding Accomplishment Program.
• Tenille Warren, Senior Commuter Programs Specialist, was recognized for her role in representing Metro Transit at a recent Juneteenth event in north Minneapolis. During the event, Tenille comforted a woman who became emotional and helped ensure other staff felt included. Reflecting on Tenille's actions that day, Outreach Coordinator Nasser Mussa wrote: "Community engagement is beautifully unpredictable because you never know who will come to your tent/table. It takes courage and empathy to comfort someone like you did.” Employers and partners regularly remark about how enjoyable Tenille is to work with in her role as a senior commuter programs specialist, too, said her manager, Theresa Cain. “She cares deeply about Metro Transit’s mission and our efforts to provide a connected experience for all our customers, with pride,” Theresa said.
• Lt. Jason Lindner, was recognized for his role as the Metro Transit Police Department's lead on special events. Since 2021, Jason has planned and staffed nearly 14,000 event hours, including Twins and Vikings games and other large events. Through all those events, there has been little need to take law enforcement action. Jason joined MTPD in 2005 and has served as a patrol officer, investigator and sergeant. “With his experience, competence, and character, he has excelled in his various roles at Metro Transit,” Interim Chief Rick Grates said.
