Celebrating Munford, Tennessee

Posted On: October 9, 2018

During our recent trip to Memphis, Tennessee area, R+L Carriers presented Alexis C. of Munford High School with the Hometown Showcase Achievement Award. Alexis also was the recipient of the Hometown Showcase $1,000 scholarship. According to Munford High School Principal Courtney Fee,

“Alexis is the epitome of a strong student maintaining a 4.0 GPA throughout her four years of high school.”

Called by her nickname “Lexie” by those who know her the closest, Alexis competes on the varsity cross country team, varsity track and field team, and the Lady Cougar Soccer Team. When it comes to handling adversity and maintaining a positive attitude, Alexis is seen as a leader not only by faculty at Munford High School but also to her peers. Munford High School Principal Courtney Fee also told us,

 “She has made our school a much better place because of her sunny disposition and her commitment to being a Cougar.”

Logistics Career Opportunities

Munford High School students, including Alexis, were able to engage with R+L Carriers employees and discuss career opportunities in logistics. Those career paths include:

Celebrate Munford

It just so happened that the Hometown Showcase was in Munford for the annual Celebrate Munford event, a day-long festival held in the downtown area of the community. The festival traditionally features vending areas and three entertainment stages, but this year it also featured the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase! We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring our interactive hauler to the festival and have some more fun with the Munford community!
