Chief District Engineers appointed for Department of Highways Districts in Paducah, Manchester

ky trans 300PADUCAH, Ky. (10/16/13) – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary Mike Hancock today announced appointments of new chief district engineers for the Department of Highways districts in Paducah and Manchester.
 
Mike McGregor, a 16-year employee of the cabinet (KYTC), takes over as chief district engineer for District 1, headquartered in Paducah. He succeeds Jim LeFevre, who retired.
 
Sherri McGeorge Chappell, who has nearly 16 years of professional experience in the private sector and with KYTC, is the new chief district engineer for District 11, headquartered in Manchester. She succeeds Cass T. “Tom” Napier, who retired.
 
Both McGregor and Chappell had been serving as interim chief district engineers.
 
“Mike McGregor and Sherri Chappell are proven performers who bring leadership skills and personal dedication to the very important post of chief district engineer,” Secretary Hancock said. “I am counting on them to help KYTC meet its objective in their respective parts of the Commonwealth.”
 
McGregor, a native of Paducah, has spent his KYTC professional career in District 1. He first worked for the cabinet while an engineering student at the University of Kentucky. He joined the cabinet as an engineer in training in 1997 and has held multiple supervisory positions. McGregor has been intimately involved in the current project to build new bridges over Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake.
 
“I have had the opportunity to work in several areas in District 1, with the long-term goal of being as prepared as I can be as a chief district engineer,” McGregor said. “I look forward to delivering our road program.”
 
McGregor received a B.S. in Civil Engineering from UK in 1997 and an M.B.A. from Murray State University in 2003. He has been a Licensed Professional Engineer since 2002. McGregor and wife Leigh Ann have two daughters and live in Lone Oak.
 
Chappell, a native of Pineville, came to KYTC in January 2012 with a background in highway design and planning, having worked for a private engineering firm and the Cumberland Valley Area Development District.
 
“We at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet can render a great service to the local governments in our districts,” Chappell said. “Most of our cities and counties in District 11 don’t have their own planning staffs. I very much enjoy working with them and helping them with their transportation needs.”
 
Chappell holds a B.S. in Math and Physics from University of the Cumberlands and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from UK. She has been a Licensed Professional Engineer since 2003. She lives in London with her husband, John, and three children.
 
District 1 comprises 12 counties in the Jackson Purchase and western Pennyrile regions: Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Crittenden, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Livingston, Lyon, Marshall, McCracken and Trigg.
 
District 11 covers eight counties in southeastern Kentucky: Bell, Clay, Harlan, Jackson, Knox, Laurel, Leslie and Whitley.
