The Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Highway Angel program acknowledges professional truck drivers for their outstanding bravery and kindness shown while on the job. More than 1,250 professional truck drivers have been recognized as Highway Angels to date.

Terry Reavis came across [a] catastrophic collision on February 19, 2023, on I-95 in Brunswick, Georgia when he witnessed a pickup truck driving backwards across three lanes of traffic and [getting] t-boned by an SUV. Terry was one of the first on scene and didn’t hesitate to assist, rescuing three children and aiding an injured woman until help arrived. His 27 years of experience and training as a first responder enabled him to manage one of the worst accidents he’s ever seen, remarkably ensuring no lives were lost.” (Three Professional Drivers Recognized as TCA's 2023 Highway Angels of the Year - Truckload Carriers Association, 3/25/2024)

Maverick’s Director of Risk Management, Eric Tompkins had this to say, “Here at Maverick we talk about doing things “The Maverick Way”. This philosophy includes “Do the right thing” with integrity, respect, and commitment, and striving for excellence in all we do. Terry not only talks the talk, but he walks the walk. To see him be recognized by industry leaders, our vendor partners, and his driver peers over the last few days has been truly enjoyable, and he is so deserving of that. We employ the best people, and the best people want to work here because of drivers like Terry.”
