 USA Truck has announced the winner of their 2006 Driver Referral Contest. Donald Green, this years’ contest winner, got to choose between a brand new Chevrolet Silverado and $20,000. Green’s family, friends, and coworkers were present during the awards ceremony where Jerry Orler, President of USA Truck, presented Green with his award, a check for $20,000. “I was incredibly surprised!” said Donald. “Everyone did a great job of keeping this a secret.”

Donald Green has been driving for USA Truck since May of 2004. “Donald has built a great career at USA Truck,” said Mike Norman, Fleet Manager at USA Truck. “He has already completed all four levels of the Advanced Driver Training Program, has a great safety record, and a winning attitude.” USA Truck recruited Green through the Driver Solutions Network company-sponsored truck driver training program. He graduated from the C1 Truck Driver Training school in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Preceding his career with USA Truck, Green spent twelve years in the military as a member of the 1644th Transportation Battalion stationed in Springfield, Illinois. Donald and his wife, Johnnie, still reside in Springfield.

USA Truck began this contest to inform their drivers of the company’s driver referral program. For each qualified driver referral, USA Truck employees receive a $300 recruiting bonus. “USA Truck has some of the best drivers in the industry. Encouraging them to recruit their family and friends makes perfect sense,” said Mike Weindel, Vice President of Human Resources, Recruiting, and Training. “The contest really helped increase participation in our driver referral program,” he said. “There was a great response.”

USA Truck is a medium haul, dry van truckload carrier transporting general commodities throughout the continental United States and southern portions of Canada. They transport general commodities into Mexico by allowing through-trailer service on their trailers through their facility in the gateway city of Laredo, Texas. USA Truck also provides Third Party Logistics and Freight Brokerage services for a diverse customer base.
