The winner of Women In Trucking’s 2018 Truck Giveaway, sponsored by Arrow Truck Sales, was announced last week at the “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel” event at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.
Tiffany Hanna, WIT member and professional driver and trainer at Prime, Inc., was the giveaway winner, and is now the proud owner of a 2014 Volvo VNL670 truck, donated by Arrow. Hanna was selected from applicants who submitted an essay on the importance of attracting more women into the trucking industry.
“Women need to know they can be successful in trucking and can do the job just as well, if not better, than a man,” Hanna wrote.
Hanna has been an advocate for female drivers at Prime and serves on the Prime Driver Advisory Board. She is also active with the Highway Diamonds celebration hosted by Prime to honor their female drivers. Hanna is a U.S. Navy Veteran, mother of five children and a cancer survivor.
In addition to the 2014 Volvo VNL670 from Arrow Trucks Sales, Women in Trucking also announces Hanna received an extensive list of products from WIT member companies, including ATBS, Blue Beacon Truck Washes, Michelin, National Truck Protection,Travel Centers of America/Petro Stopping Centers and many more. Total value of the giveaway was more than $75,000, Women in Trucking says.
“We are thrilled to hand over the keys to Tiffany, who has been an advocate for women in the trucking industry by mentoring and supporting the women and men at Prime, Inc.,” says Ellen Voie, president and CEO of Women in Trucking. “This is truly the chance of a lifetime, thanks to Arrow Truck Sales and their very generous donation.”
Jim Stevenson, Arrow director of national accounts, also serves on the Women In Trucking board of directors and shared in Voie’s congratulations toward Hanna and support of Women in Trucking.
“Arrow has long been supportive of equality and diversity efforts within the trucking industry,” he says. “We appreciate this opportunity to award Tiffany with this late model Volvo truck to support her success as an owner-operator.”
