NCI President Expresses Appreciation to Drivers
National Carriers, Inc. was elated to announce, Lease Operator Goldie Seymour from Wagoner, Okla., as the NCI 2014 Driver of the Year. For the first time in the 47-year history of the company, a woman has earned the title of Driver of the Year. The announcement came at the conclusion of the annual NCI Driver of the Year banquet. Among her many gifts she was awarded a check for $5,000.
Seymour exemplifies the “Elite” Fleet. “She always has a positive, can-do attitude. She goes out of her way to be professional in everything she does. As a women, she is, I am sure, the first of many to come. I want to thank you for all she does. It’s my privilege to work alongside you.
Nationwide attention and accolades have poured out for Seymour since she was named NCI Driver of the Year. She has been featured in both Women in Trucking magazine and their online media. June’s issue of MOVIN OUT had a six page editorial, her hometown newspaper ran a feature column and in the latest issue of the Elite magazine is a reprinted article written for a national Kenworth Truck publication. The National Carrier YouTube channel offers a short video featuring Seymour discussing issues that women face in transportation and how she overcomes obstacles.
Each of our drivers are valuable to National Carriers. The pride, integrity, and professionalism each driver exhibits far exceeds the industry standards. In September the “Elite” Fleet will present each of our drivers with a gift during Driver Appreciation Week to demonstrate NCI’s gratitude to our driving professionals.
