This week, we welcomed 45 J.B. Hunt drivers to corporate to celebrate their safe driving!
In 2016, 71 drivers achieved 2, 3 and 4 million safe miles and 45 joined us in Lowell to be honored during two days of events – kicking off with a BBQ dinner Monday night. At the dinner, drivers and their families enjoyed a delicious meal and live music, with a special appearance from Richie McDonald, lead singer of Lonestar. Drivers also participated in the fourth annual Loads of Love event where they packed boxes full of snacks and care items to send to military members overseas.
On Tuesday, drivers participated in breakout sessions with upper management before the award luncheon at the Embassy Suites. At the luncheon, each driver received their award and were recognized for their accomplishments in front of their families and fellow drivers, their leadership, the Executive Team and many more.
Following the luncheon, drivers and their guests visited corporate for their moment in the spotlight – the Walk of Fame! Corporate employees lined four flights of stairs to clap, cheer, high five and most importantly, thank the drivers for their safety, hard work and dedication to J.B. Hunt.
We had a great time celebrating the best of the best. Congratulations and thank you to the 71 honorees!
