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!

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.

Committed to Educating Students of all Ages

Published: | Author: HometownAuthor

Inspired by recent school visits within our hometown of Wilmington, Ohio, we were reminded of our key foundation. R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase is committed to educating and providing opportunities within the transportation and logistics industry to students of all ages, nationwide.

East End Elementary

Pre-K students at East End Elementary were learning about transportation and roads in class, so when the teachers called us to ask if we would give their students an interactive experience of transportation on the road, we said: “let’s do it!” The teachers told us the students were bursting with excitement before we arrived; the classes erupted with joy when they saw the first truck (a milk truck), through the classroom window. Finally, we arrived and their expressions were priceless! Of course, each of the students wanted to be first to ride the Bose Ride simulator. They had a blast imagining what it is like to be on the road as a truck driver. Prepared with questions, the students were curious about the types of food that drivers eat, where they sleep, and if they can bring their favorite pets on the road.

Educating students in the East End Pre-K classes was fun for our team and we appreciate the students for their enthusiasm for transportation.

Laurel Oaks Career Campus

This was our first time visiting Laurel Oaks, which is a satellite campus of Great Oaks. The first thing that caught our eye was their vision statement which we immediately connected with. “Providing innovative career training to empower individuals and communities”. The transportation and logistics industry is full of innovative career opportunities and R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase is constantly striving to empower individuals and communities across America through education initiatives.

“I just wanted to thank you again for taking the time to visit our campus. Our students were excited about the opportunity to experience the activities in the truck. I hope we can work together in the future to benefit R&L and the students at Laurel Oaks.”

– Kevin E. Abt, Dean of Instruction Laurel Oaks Career Campus

Our recruiting team spent time with the Mechanics and Technology division and everyone enjoyed a classroom presentation regarding career opportunities that exist within the logistics industry. Those studying to be diesel mechanics were able to speak with R+L Carriers Mechanics, who were also in attendance, and students studying technology explored varies career paths in logistics, including:

Laurel Oaks students toured our hauler to learn more about the logistics industry and heard a presentation about logistics career opportunities.

While one group of students at East End has just started their education journey to find a career path and another group of students at Laurel Oaks is getting ready to enter the workforce, educating students of all ages is important to the mission of the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase. It’s never too early, or too late to be excited about opportunities in the logistics industry.  If you are interested in our interactive hauler visiting your school or community, contact us today!

The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase rolled into the 2017 Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Boys Basketball Tournament, which took place March 23-25 in Columbus, Ohio. Sixteen Ohio basketball teams and thousands of fans ascended onto The Schottenstein Center for the three-day tournament. Thursday and Friday each division held two semifinal games and on Saturday, four champions were crowned in each division.

Fan Interaction

Our Hometown Showcase hauler was hard to miss outside the Northwest Entrance of The Schottenstein Center! Crowds gravitated to our interactive hub for entertainment, games and to learn more about the many career opportunities at R+L Carriers. Several R+L representatives were on hand to pass out literature about the Hometown Showcase and guide guests through the hauler. Perhaps the biggest hit of the three days; outside of the great basketball games, was the Cornhole Challenge. Participants had the opportunity to win official Hometown Showcase merchandise like t-shirts and stadium seats.
