"On behalf of the Washington State Department of Transportation, thank you for being such a great mentor to KCD Trucking. Their experience spotlights your company's desire to help WSDOT create a more equitable contracting environment. Again, thank you for being such a great mentor in the Capacity Building Mentorship Program. We appreciate you."

"They [Atkinson] have contributed to my business's growth and I am grateful. I am also grateful for the 2018 WSDOT mentorship program because without that, I would have never had the opportunities I've had with Atkinson in such a short period of time. Thank you for that. It was truly life-changing."

Kelly Jefferson, CEO, KCD Trucking
