Back to list PMTA Recognizes 2021 Drivers of the Month and Driver of the Year

On March 30, 2022, the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association recognized its 2021 Drivers of the Month and presented the 2021 Driver of the Year Award at a banquet in Camp Hill.

PMTA’s Safety Management Council (SMC) Driver of the Month/Year program recognizes outstanding drivers for their achievement in highway safety.

To be eligible, a driver must be employed by a member company and reside or be domiciled in Pennsylvania. The selection committee considers a nominee’s driving record, customer service, and commitment, as well as letters of recommendation and other supporting documentation.

The program runs annually from January to December, and the Driver of the Year is selected from the 12 monthly awardees. The winning Driver of the Year for Pennsylvania is then submitted for nomination for the National Driver of the Year Award in the American Trucking Associations’ program.

The awardees were presented plaques during the program last week, which was sponsored by Sentry Insurance. The Driver of the Year Awardee received a trophy. PMTA board and SMC board members were in attendance to recognize these exceptional drivers, along with the drivers’ companies and families.

Between them, the 2021 Drivers of the Month have over 325 combined years of driving and more than 21 million miles. They embody the professionals who deliver America’s goods safely and efficiently every day.

Congratulations to the 2021 Pennsylvania Drivers of the Month!
