After showing a video with testimonials from her Bison Transport colleagues, Young was welcomed to the stage to the music of Abba’s Dancing Queen. She had the entire audience bouncing in their seats when she took the stage to accept the award.

“I’m shocked,” she said, of winning the award. She then thanked “All those people at Bison Transport who are my family. And I come from a family of nine, so I get what that means. I’m truly honored and thank them for making this possible, by allowing me to do what I do with people and programs.”
