Congratulating Mike Haverty on his selection as Railway Ages Railroader of the Year.

 

WHEREAS, Mike Haverty, President and CEO of Kansas City Southern Railway and Chairman of Kansas City Southern Industries, is indeed a builder, an independent thinker who has often cast aside the doubts of those who say it cant be done; and

He was appointed President and CEO of KCSR in 1995, and added the title of Chairman of KCSI this year; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

That the Mayor and Council hereby congratulate Mike Haverty upon his extraordinary achievements during his career as a railroader and selection as Railway Ages
