LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Randolph Boswell, a driver for Southern Refrigerated Transport, Texarkana, Ark. , was selected as the Darrell Hicks Memorial Ambassador of the Year for 2013 by Trucker Buddy International.
The award was presented at the Red Eye Radio Party March 21 at the Mid-America Trucking Show here.
Boswell has been an active Trucker Buddy for more than seven years and an Ambassador for almost five years.
Ambassadors are seasoned and veteran Trucker Buddies who feel the need to help Trucker Buddy by working trade show booths, recruiting drivers at truck stops and offering meaningful suggestions to help improve the program.
"Randy has been an excellent Ambassador for Trucker Buddy. He's sacrificed his time and energy to help us recruit other drivers into the program and to represent Trucker Buddy at key industry trade shows. Randy and another driver have worked the Charlotte Diesel Show for three years, as well as the Mid-America Trucking Show, using his own vacation-time to promote Trucker Buddy,” said Trucker Buddy Executive Director Randy Schwartzenberg.
"Without the help of Ambassadors like Randy,” Schwartzenberg said, “we simply could not fulfill our mission to improve the image of drivers and encourage over 60,000 students to excel in school each year. And it's important to note the generous assistance of motor carriers like Southern Refrigerated which route the ambassadors to the shows — they're such valuable partners in our efforts.”
Named for the late Darrell Hicks, long-time Trucker Buddy, board member and ambassador, the award is bestowed upon select individuals and are selected by K.C. Brau, president of Trucker Buddy, and John Waldvogel, head ambassador.
