It was a busy weekend for the R+L Hometown Showcase and two Ohio schools. Friday we visited Cardinal High School in Middlefield, Ohio and Saturday, Pickerington High School North in Pickerington, Ohio.
Cardinal High School
Our Hometown Showcase team spent the day with the students at Cardinal High School and Cardinal Middle School. There students were able to get a first-hand look at the logistics industry through education when our team gave a brief presentation in the classroom about the importance of transportation and logistics and how it impacts their 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 offers.
Logistics is fun but Friday night football is even MORE fun, so our crew stuck around for the Friday night football game. Fans had the opportunity to experience the same tour as the students inside the hauler. We also set up a tailgating atmosphere with corn hole and an inflatable football toss. At halftime, Cardinal High School student Megan T. was awarded the Hometown Showcase Student Achievement Award. This award is presented to a student who excels not only in school but also in the community.
Pickerington High School North
Early Saturday morning our hauler rolled into Pickerington High School North for the Panther Cross Country Invitational. With the dew still on the ground, runners lined up to compete. Athletes in their down time and fans attending the invitational came to our hauler to check it out. Everyone there had the opportunity to tour the hauler to learn more about logistics and R+L Carriers. Of course, we set up corn hole and our scavenger hunt, giving people an opportunity to win prizes.
The Panther Cross Country team was presented a $1,000 Hometown Showcase Scholarship that will be given to an athlete chosen by the school administration.
