Transportation Club of Tacoma Scholarships

MATT MOSKAL, STAN LEVY & ANITA LYDIARD SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Matt Moskal, originally from Chicago, was a long-time instructor at Green River Community College (GRCC) in Auburn and McCord AFB. Matt was instrumental in developing and teaching GRCC’s Traffic and Transportation Program. He worked in the transportation industry for many years and was a mentor to many local professionals who began their transportation careers in his classrooms. He also served on transportation related boards, and was a well respected consultant.

Stan Levy was active in the Club for over 50 years and served as Secretary-Treasurer under President Bill Rutherford. In November of 2001, he was awarded TCT’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Always involved in his community, Stan volunteered for the Elk’s Christmas Toys for Children, at Tacoma’s Temple Bethel, Little League, and Boy Scouts’ Order of the Arrow. His long career was spent at Pacific Highway Transport, Portland Seattle Freight Lines (ABF), Southwest Delivery, Silver Eagle, Brader (Easley Hauling), and Okanogan-Seattle Transport.

Anita Lydiard served as TCT President January-July 2008. For many years, she produced the membership Directory and was active on the Scholarship committee. A caring individual who brought her positive attitude and strong leadership skills to the Board of Directors, Anita worked tirelessly to help grow and improve the club and its events. Involved in many charities, including American Cancer Society’s “Team Lydiard”, she stood ready to lend a hand right up until she passed away in December 2010. In honor of her life and spirit within our club, Anita Lydiard’s name was added starting with the 2012 TCT Scholarship program.
