The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase recently kicked off the 2018-2019 school year at Waynesville High School in Waynesville, Ohio where our team gave a presentation on Supply Chain Management (SCM), and the global freight and logistics industry. Our team grows increasingly excited to share the vast employment opportunities available within the logistics industry with students headed to college and those who plan to immediately enter the workforce. As part of our visit, we were honored to be able to present our Student Achievement Award to a very deserving student, Kenna.
Kenna H. Receives Hometown Showcase Achievement Award
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.
