Nov 21, 2005 9:04 AM, from staff and wire reports
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co will continue to accept nominations for its 23rd annual North American Highway Hero program through November 30. The Highway Hero program honors truckers who selflessly put themselves at risk to assist a fellow motorist.
“With the final deadline fast approaching, we don’t want to leave any driver out of consideration,” said Steve McClellan, Goodyear vice-president–commercial tire systems.
To be considered for the award, these criteria must be met:
•Nominee must be a full-time truck driver and a resident of the United States or Canada.
•Incident recognized must have occurred in the United States or Canada.
•Nominee must have been on the job or on the way to or from work, and in his or her rig at the time of the incident.
•Incident must have occurred between Nov 16, 2004, and Nov 15, 2005.
•Nominee’s truck at the time of the incident must have 14 wheels or more.
Nomination forms and program details may be obtained by phoning the Goodyear Highway Hero Hotline at 330-796-8183. The nomination form also is available on the program’s web site at www.goodyear.com/truck.
After four finalists are determined, one individual will be selected to serve as the ambassador for the program as the Goodyear North American Highway Hero. Finalists will be invited to the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville KY, where they will be recognized for their actions.
