R+L Carriers is proud to have presented Kelli U. of McClain High School in Greenfield, Ohio with the Hometown Showcase Achievement Award on October 5. Kelli, a senior at McClain High School was nominated by McClain High School Principal Jason Potts. She was presented with the award at the Friday night football game after our team was able to interact with students around logistics career opportunities in the classroom. After the presentations to students, we blocked off the streets, rolled in our interactive hauler for the community, and had some Hometown Showcase fun!
McClain High School Senior Kelli U.
Mr. Potts told us that he nominated Kelli as she is an excellent student, student-athlete, and all-around great young lady. He also informed us that Kelli represents McClain High School exceptionally in her various school affiliations.
Kelli is involved in several extracurricular activities such as soccer, basketball, and FFA, and she was named Team Captain of the McClain Lady Tiger Varsity Soccer Team.
“Obtaining this [Team Captain] position has allowed me to successfully lead my team to our greatest potential”, Kelli told us.
She is also a member of the National Honor Society, where members of this nationwide organization are selected based on their scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Kelli credits her leadership skills largely to participating in the McClain High School FFA program. She told us that public speaking was a weakness during her freshman year and the thought of giving a speech in front of 25 of her classmates was daunting. After three years of hard work, Kelli stood in front of 600 FFA members and guests and delivered a speech on the topic of leadership at an FFA banquet for her chapter. She credits learning from those closest to her with teaching her how to be a leader.
“Above all, Kelli has high integrity”, McClain High School principal Jason Potts added.
