Maverick Transportation announced Kurt Shunkey of Conway, AR as their Driver of the Month for October 2022. Shunkey has been driving with Maverick since 2017.
"Kurt is a true Maverick and is always willing to help others when he has the opportunity," said his fleet manager, Troy Jackson. "Kurt has even gone as far as swapping loads with fewer miles in order to help others get home for the weekend. Kurt is always a pleasure to work with, is always upbeat, and always has a smile on his face. Thank you, Kurt, for all you do and congratulations on your DOM award."
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.
