The last two weekends of October took Hometown Showcase to two Ohio high schools. During our time at these schools we discussed transportation and logistics careers with students, had fun tailgating at football games, and gave awards to deserving students.
Springfield High School
Our Hometown Showcase team spent October 21st with the students at Springfield High School. Students were able to get a first-hand look at the logistics industry when our team gave a brief classroom presentation on the logistics/transportation industry and how it impacts daily life. After the presentation, students took a tour of our 53-foot interactive hauler, where they learned specifically about the logistics opportunities R+L Carriers has to offer.
The Hometown crew stayed around for the football game that night, when Springfield hosted Wayne in a big time Ohio High School Football matchup. Wayne defeated Springfield 38 -14. Before the game, our team presented Springfield student, Tim Taylor, with the R+L Carriers Hometown Student Achievement Award. We also awarded a $1,000 scholarship to the school on behalf of Hometown Showcase to be presented to a deserving graduating senior at the end of the school year.
Clinton Massie High School
High school students at Clinton Massie High School in Clarksville, Ohio were treated to a full day of learning about the logistics industry on October 28th. Throughout the day, R+L Carriers representatives gave a presentation to students about how the industry impacts their everyday life and the variety of careers in the industry. Your next adventure in logistics could be:
- Professional Driver
- Freight Handler
- Information Technology
- Hardware Support
Students were then able to tour our interactive hauler for an up-close look at the industry.
Students and fans were able to join in on the Hometown Showcase fun again at the football game that night between Clinton Massie and East Clinton. R+L rolled out our tailgating gear complete with corn hole. During the game, Clinton Massie student, Alyssa Zammert, received the Hometown Showcase Achievement Award. The school also received a $1,000 scholarship which will be awarded to a deserving senior after graduation.
