NEW YORK (WABC) -- Just in time for Mother's Day, Eyewitness News is celebrating a mother-daughter duo as our MTA Heroes of the week.
Dispatcher Leslie Green and her daughter, train operator Carla Yearwood, have served the public with distinction for years.
Green started as a conductor in 2001 and rose through the ranks.
Yearwood became a train operator in 2015.
Yearwood said she is proud to be her mother's daughter.
"Every day I'm grateful that my mom gave me a career path to follow...I'm so proud to have her same hustle and motivation to excel. Thank you mom for leading the way," she said.
Happy Mother's Day to Leslie!
