Werner Enterprises Sponsors 2018 Military Bowl
Werner Enterprises sponsored the 11th annual Military Bowl at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium that took place Monday, Dec. 31, 2018. Werner’s Operation Freedom 13 driver, Quinton Ward, was recognized with a special on-field ceremony celebrating his designation as the 2018 Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence Award winner.
“Werner appreciates our veterans, veteran spouses and their families who continuously strengthen our workforce,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Derek Leathers. “It is a privilege to participate in the Military Bowl and an honor to recognize the teamwork, dedication and sportsmanship of college football.”
The Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence Award is given to one winner each year selected among veterans, guard members and reservists who successfully transition to the trucking industry following military service. As the winner, Ward received a fully-loaded Kenworth T-680, which Werner specially wrapped with a military support theme as part of its Operation Freedom fleet. Ward served his country in the United States Army for five years before beginning his professional truck driving career in 2017.
