When asked about Huston, terminal manager Sheri Plant stated “Bill is here every day; he is happy and always smiling. He likes his job and never complains. He is helpful and courteous to his fellow drivers. He never calls off work. A week ago he took an airline to the scale house in Canada where one of our drivers was shut down and installed it. It saved the load from being late and it saved MTS hundreds of dollars for not having to call a service truck out. We need more drivers like him!”

James and Bill were selected from a list of Driver of the Month candidates provided by each terminal.   For winning Corporate Driver of the Month, they will receive a certificate, Driver of the Month hat, and a custom inscribed Buck Knife with their name and the MTS logo.  All     Corporate Driver of the Month winners are also in the running to be MTS Driver of the Year.
