During a special ceremony on Feb. 18, Miami-Dade County officials renamed the Metromover facility in downtown Miami to posthumously honor Miami-Dade Transit employee Joseph Bryant. Bryant was a dedicated employee for 28 years, of which 15 years were spent in the Metromover Maintenance Division, where Bryant rose through the ranks to become a Metromover maintenance supervisor before losing his life while on duty the evening of June 19, 2009.
An exemplary County
employee, Bryant distinguished himself by his outstanding work ethic. During
his service with MDT, Bryant received numerous letters of appreciation and
commendation, and various awards, including MDT’s Employee of the Quarter and
Employee of the Year awards.
