The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase travels all over America to provide students with an understanding of transportation, logistics and the many careers associated with it. Logistics is a growing industry with endless career opportunities, and we want to make sure students are educated on all the careers available to them. During the months of September and October, Hometown Showcase visited Clinton Massie High School, East Clinton High School and Blanchester High School with the goal of educating Clinton County students about logistics. Each school is only about 30 minutes from our Corporate Headquarters in Wilmington, OH.
Educating Clinton County Students: Logistics Classroom Presentations
These classroom presentations provide students the basics of transportation and logistics. What is transportation, logistics, and supply chain management? Chances are students have heard of these terms before, but may have not thought about them in-depth. It’s our goal to make this presentation interactive. Through discussion topics, questions, and videos students learn about the world of transportation and logistics. For example:
- How did their phone get from the warehouse to the store to their hands?
- What are 1st and 2nd tier suppliers and customers?
- What would happen if all the trucks stopped running?
The transportation and logistics industry is projected to grow 22% by the year 2022, so it’s important to let students know the variety of careers in the industry. From Mechanics to Sales, to Administrative/Clerical positions, there is a career that fits!
Hometown Showcase Achievement Award
In addition to providing educational opportunities for students, we also support our mission by providing college scholarships and achievement awards to students who are making a difference in their school and in the community. The Achievement Award is given to a student who demonstrates exceptional sportsmanship, outstanding character, and a commitment to community involvement. The following students received our Hometown Showcase Student Achievement Award.
