Prime inc. recognizes million mile achievements

January 19, 2012

Prime recently recognized 13 of its drivers for reaching 1 million or 2 million miles of safe driving for the company during October and November.

“This difficult milestone takes drivers years of hard work, attention to detail and a high level of professionalism on the road,” said Don Lacey, Prime inc. director of safety. “Recognizing our driving associates who reach a million miles of safe driving is a true honor for us.”
Driving 2 million safe miles was Wayne E. Casimir. For this achievement, Casimir received a custom-fitted lambskin leather jacket, a lapel pin and certificate.

Drivers who reached a million miles and have been at Prime for seven years with no preventable accidents reached the Gold Million level. They were: Punch Chongprasert, Albert G. Craven, Brian C. Duckett, Jimmy J. Henley, Matthew J. Murphy, David S. Zettlemoyer, Marvin D. Bell and Michael A. Bratcher. The Silver Million level was awarded to drivers with three consecutive years at Prime having no preventable accidents plus four years with a previous carrier with no preventable accidents. They were: Walter Craft, Johnny R. Jackson, Willie E. Hill and Ellsworth Jackson.

For passing the 1 million mile mark, the drivers received an engraved plaque and watch, a certificate and a lapel pin. Plaques bearing the names of all of these individuals will also hang in Prime’s Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mo.
