Goodyear seeking driver hero nominations
Sep 30, 2004 3:04 PM
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is seeking nominations for its 22nd annual North America Highway Hero award. "The Highway Hero program is for those who selflessly risk life and limb to come to the aid of fellow motorists," said Steve McClellan, vice-president, commercial tire systems. "We believe honor should always be met with honor."
Last year's winner, Derrick Harris, a Virginia driver for Schneider National Carriers of Green Bay WI, saved the life of a person deliberately set on fire. He then helped police locate and arrest the person who was charged with the crime.
Nominations will be accepted through November 30, 2004. To be considered for this year's award, nominees must be a full-time truck driver and a resident of the United States or Canada. The incident must have occurred in the United States or Canada between November 16, 2003 and November 15, 2004. The nominee must have been on the job or on the way to or from work, and in his or her rig at the time of the incident; and the nominee's truck at the time of the incident must have 14 wheels or more.
Nomination forms and program details may be obtained by calling the Goodyear Highway Hero Hotline at 330-796-8183, or for more information, click here.
