Maverick Transportation announced TJ Hargis of South Pittsburg, TN as their Driver of the Month for July 2020. Hargis started his career at Maverick in October 2007. He was previously Driver of the Month in 2011.
"TJ has always been a great driver and trainer for Maverick," said Fleet Manager Lou Shoults. "He puts a lot of pride in training his students and is well-respected among all of the drivers. TJ always volunteers for anything Maverick needs and would be a great Driver of the Month again!"
The Driver of the Month program is a high honor for specially-selected Maverick drivers. Every month Maverick recognizes a driver from the company's fleet who demonstrates exceptional commitment to their profession, while maintaining Maverick's standards of holding safety in the highest regard. At the end of the year, all Maverick employees vote from the twelve Driver of the Month honorees to select the Driver of the Year, which is announced the following January. As Driver of the Month, the recipient also serves as a voice of fellow drivers on the prestigious Driver Advisory Council, which meets with our leadership team on a quarterly basis.
