Springfield, Missouri – Prime recently recognized 17 of its drivers for reaching one million or two million miles of safe driving for the company during March, April and May.
“Recognizing our driving associates who reach a million miles or more without a preventable accident is a real honor for us,” said Don Lacy, Prime inc. director of safety. “This milestone takes a lot of hard work, attention to detail and a high level of professionalism on the road and it certainly isn’t easy to reach.”
Driving two million safe miles were Paula J. Lyke and Juan J. Guerra. For this achievement, Lyke and Guerra each received a custom-fitted lambskin leather jacket, a lapel pin and certificate.
Drivers who reached a million miles and have been at Prime for seven years with no preventable accidents reached the Gold Million level. They were: Donald A. Fields, Michael W. Gandee, Darrin Lee Jackson, Phillip A. Matchett, Charity E. Thomas, John J. Penders, Victor L. Blackburn, Juan Guerra Jr., Mark C. Kidwell, Mark E. Oldham, Dillip Ramnanan, Peter J. Sampson, David A. Williams, Matthew E. Allen, Bonny J. Fisher, Howard F. Smith and Jerald R. Thomas. The Silver Million level was awarded to drivers with three consecutive years at Prime having no preventable accidents plus four years with a previous carrier with no preventable accidents. They were: Angelo R. Maio, Thomas L. Carroll, Jerry Haecker, Charles A. Lane and Janice M. Olsen.
For passing the one million mile mark, the drivers were given an engraved plaque and watch, a certificate and a lapel pin. Plaques bearing the names of all of these individuals will also hang in Prime’s Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mo.
