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.

McClain High School senior Kelli U. was awarded the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase Achievement Award.

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.

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!

Kimmey J of Brighton High School Receives Achievement Award

Published: | Author: HometownAuthor

Brighton High School, home of the Cardinals, was one of the stops we made during our recent trip to Memphis, Tennessee. We spoke to high school students about the many career opportunities available within the transportation and logistics industry. That evening during their Friday night football game, we were honored to present our student achievement award to a very deserving student, Kimmey J.

Brighton High School Student Kimmy J. Receives Achievement Award

R+L Carriers was proud to present our Hometown Showcase Achievement Award to Brighton High School senior Kimmey J. Brighton Assistant Principal and Athletic Director Brian Crowson nominated Kimmey because he regularly demonstrates the character that he expects from all Brighton High School students. Mr. Crowson said

“Kimmey is the same person if he is being supervised by a teacher or walking with friends down the hallway.”

In addition to his outstanding character, Kimmey is a leader on the Brighton High School baseball team where he encourages younger players to perform better and fight through adversity. We asked Kimmey about the personal attributes that set him apart from the rest of his classmates, and he said his generosity and the fact that he is always willing to go out of his way to help others. For example, he described a time he saw an elderly woman struggling with her grocery basket and how he rushed over to help her unload her groceries. This is exactly the kind of giving heart Kimmey demonstrates on a daily basis. His leadership, positive attitude, and friendly personality are qualities that will help him be successful in the future. We’re proud to be able to acknowledge Kimmey and the character he possesses.

The Hometown Showcase Achievement Award presented to Waynesville senior Kenna H. during the game was an exciting moment that she was able to share with classmates and fellow community members.

Waynesville faculty member, Abby Shinkle nominated Kenna because she consistently demonstrates exceptional sportsmanship, character and community involvement.

“Kenna volunteers for many hours to help the community members throughout the school year and in the summer. By being involved with the National Honor Society not only does she maintain excellent grades and focuses on academics, but she also has had an enormous impact on many people in the community.”

The biggest influence in Kenna’s life is her mom because she inspires Kenna to do better in both school and sports. Kenna asserts that her mom, who was also an athlete in high school, is her biggest role model.  Kenna has been a member of the volleyball, cross county, basketball and softball teams throughout all four years of high school.

We asked Kenna about a meaningful event in her life and how that experience could influence her future. Kenna told us that working with kids for her church every Sunday has taught her patience, a quality she can certainly apply in future endeavors.

Fairfield High School Students Get Recognized

Published: | Author: HometownAuthor

A primary component of the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase is investing in the future of high school students across America. One way we support our mission is by providing college scholarships and career opportunities to students at the institutions we visit, and the special events that we attend. We believe continuing education and specialized training is critical when preparing for the future.

Fairfield High School

On January 26, 2018, the Hometown Showcase arrived at Fairfield High School located in Leesburg, Ohio.  The Fairfield High School motto is “ Excellence, Preparation for Life, Opportunities for All.” This reminds students that the effort they put into their education from the beginning of each day, of each school year, will reap rewards later in life.  The Hometown Showcase advocates the very same and believes that we are champions of our own success. We quickly realized the connection we had with the students, faculty, and staff. The Hometown Showcase could not be more pleased to partner with Fairfield High School for this initiative.

Fairfield High School

Fairfield High School students Cody and Makenna were recognized for their outstanding for their work at school and in the community.

Students were able to tour our interactive hauler throughout the day and our team was on hand to discuss career opportunities that exist within logistics and commercial transportation. When most students hear about commercial transportation companies such as R+L Carriers, they quickly associate the entire industry with the truck driving profession. In reality, the logistics industry must leverage experts from numerous fields such as accounting, marketing, mechanics, IT and sales.

Achievement and Scholarship Awards

This past December, we had the opportunity to see Fairfield High School Boys Varsity Basketball participate in the Ohio Valley Hoops Classic. During our visit to the school in January, we were able to watch the team play again and at halftime, we presented two students with the Hometown Achievement Award and a $1,000 Scholarship.

Achievement and scholarship recipients are not required to be athletes, but they must demonstrate outstanding qualities that contribute to making their community special.

Investing in the Future of High School Students

Published: | Author: HometownAuthor

The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase is an education initiative with a goal to generate awareness of the transportation and logistics industry. Logistics is utilized by a wide variety of institutions (everything from global corporations to city governments), the transportation and logistics industry is made up of many different parts that perform very different functions, and there is no shortage of career paths .

One way we show students that we are investing in their future is by providing Hometown Achievement Awards and Scholarships. At the end of 2017, several students from Washington Court House and Hillsboro schools received both awards.

Washington Court House High School

After learning about career opportunities in transportation and logistics, Washington Court House students got the chance to visit the Hometown Showcase interactive hauler. We were honored to be a part of their pep rally! This was a fun opportunity for our representatives because they were able to present an Achievement Award to Grant P.

Grant plans to attend Wright State University after he graduates spring of 2018.

Grant participates in baseball with his school and plans to attend Wright State University after he graduates spring of 2018. Congratulations, Grant! We also gave out a scholarship to assist a student in his future. Zane N. participates in wrestling and football at Washington Court House.

Hillsboro High School

During the day we gave a presentation to juniors and seniors about transportation, logistics, and supply chain management. Like many schools we go to, students are surprised to learn that logistics is so prevalent in everyday life. Emma L., Marcy M., and Sarah W. all received the Hometown Showcase Award.

Emma is active in both her school and the community. She is VP of The Children of the American Revolution, and a member of Daughters of the American Revolution Club. She also volunteers in the Hillsboro High School Library while working at the Highland County Public Library.

Marcy is a member of the Spanish Club and is also active in her church. She aids in the Hillsboro High School office, assisted in pet therapy at a local nursing home, and assisted in community clean-up projects.

Sarah is active in the community, her church, and volunteers for Kamp Dovetail, and a mobile food pantry. She is a member of National Honor Society, has participated in the Hillsboro High School swim and track & field teams, and is enrolled in College Credit Plus classes at Southern State Community College.

The future of the logistics industry is in the hands of students across America, and that’s why we want to reach them. If you are interested in the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase coming to your school or community, contact us today!

 

Hometown visits Crestview High School

Published: | Author: HometownAuthor

Choosing a career path can be challenging when you are in high school and you don’t know what opportunities are available to you. These are huge decisions to make, but by researching different career options, you can find a good match for you.

As the future of the Logistics industry, high school students are a prime audience for the R+L Carriers’ Hometown Showcase. Traveling across the country to invest in these students and their education is important to us. We do this by providing financial scholarships to high school students while also giving them information on preparing to join our ever-growing industry.

On Friday, Sept. 8, 2017, the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase Hauler took a trip to Columbiana, OH, and visited the students of Crestview High School.

On Friday, Sept. 8, 2017, the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase Hauler took a trip to Columbiana, OH, and visited the students of Crestview High School. Not only did the students get to explore the hauler and learn about the career options in logistics during the school day, but fans also got the chance to play Cornhole at the football game that night and win a variety of prizes.

Crestview High School Classroom

R+L representatives went from classroom to classroom at Crestview High School giving a presentation about logistics, transportation and the supply chain. To put it in perspective, we talked about how these three portions of the industry make their life easier. The students were surprised to learn that much of their belongings would not have been in their possession without logistics and transportation.

Since this high school was close to our Youngstown Service Center, a few employees came to help out, talk about their experiences with R+L, and the various career opportunities that are right down the road from these students. Throughout the day, the interactive Hometown Showcase hauler was toured by over 400 students.

Great Way to End a Great Day

The Crestview Rebels dominated the Akron North Vikings 48-8 in the football game that night. The Hometown Showcase hauler was parked in front of the main gate of the stadium, which made it a big attraction. Attendants of the football game could take a break and play Cornhole to win prizes such as blankets, stadium seats, t-shirts, and mini R+L footballs. Before the game, R+L Carriers donated $1000 to Crestview High School and presented a $1000 scholarship to the school for a student to be announced later in the school year. We enjoyed educating their students on the career opportunities that R+L has to offer and wanted to show our gratitude for this opportunity to invest in their future.

The winner of the Hometown Achievement Award, Josh Pilla, has shown exceptional dedication to achievement.

Our visit to Crestview High School was nothing short of great! We enjoyed showing the students what the logistics industry has to offer and having a blast doing it. Next, the Hometown Showcase hauler will travel to Southern State Community College in Wilmington, OH.

Hometown Goes Out West

Published: | Author: HometownAuthor

The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase headed west during the first week of November, traveling to three area high schools in three days. Elsinore High School, Lakeside High School, and Temescal Canyon High School all experienced the Hometown Showcase and learned more about the logistics industry.

Classroom Presentations

R+L representatives started the day bright and early with the California sunrise, which was beautiful by the way. Check out our pictures on Facebook and Instagram. Our presentations incorporated the definitions of logistics, transportation, and supply chain. We talked to students about how their life would be different without all three. Some students were surprised that without logistics and transportation, many of the clothes and accessories they love would not be able to make it to them for purchase.

Interactive Hauler

Our 53-foot interactive hauler gave students the opportunity the experience the logistics industry up close. Inside the trailer, students could watch up to 11 HD displays about the various career opportunities with R+L in the shipping industry, as well as see some of the additional work that R+L does in the community through the Lima Company Memorial and the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. Always one of the favorite parts of the trailer on every stop is the technologically advanced Bose Ride seating simulator, which gives riders a chance to feel what it’s like to be behind the wheel at R+L Carriers as a driver.
