Maverick Transportation announced Lynn Ward of Surgoinsville, TN, as their Driver of the Month for July 2018. Ward has been driving with Maverick since May 2009.
"Lynn is Maverick to a T," said Fleet Manager Heath Ericson. "Anyone here at Maverick can call Lynn and ask him to help with anything, and he will do it, no questions asked. Lynn is a perfect example of what a professional driver should be. Everyday is a great day when you get to work with Lynn."
The Driver of the Month program is a high honor for specially-selected Maverick drivers. Every month Maverick recognizes a driver from the company's fleet who demonstrates exceptional commitment to their profession, while maintaining Maverick's standards of holding safety in the highest regard. At the end of the year, all Maverick employees vote from the twelve Driver of the Month honorees to select the Driver of the Year, which is announced the following January. As Driver of the Month, the recipient also serves as a voice of fellow drivers on the prestigious Driver Advisory Council, which meets with our leadership team on a quarterly basis.
