"This is wonderful news and of course I am honored to accept the Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Production (STEP) Award! Over the years, I have had the pleasure in working with other impactful women, so I am aware of the talent pool and I am proud to be considered in that group," said Diana Devlin, Vice President, IST, Spartan Motors.
