JOPLIN, MO.--- Conway Truckload in Joplin honors truck drivers today for their hard work and kind hearts. Drivers received awards for one-million, two-million, and three-million miles driven. A special award called the "Highway Angel" was also handed out to Leonard Domina.
Last year, he rescued a 17-year-old teenage driver who hit Domina's truck and jammed into his radiator under the bumper. The Highway Angel was presented with a certificate, patch, and pin. Conway representatives say today was a great day to show appreciation to their hard working employees.
"The Driver Award Ceremonies are the most well represented events we have here at Conway Truckload. They love it, they not only deserve the recognition, obviously, but they love the recognition as well. And our drivers love to recognize their peers," said Randy Cornell, Conway Vice President of Maintenance.
"I mean it's nice to be recognized. It's part of the job. I mean, I just keep going. I don't know what I'm supposed to feel other than thanks for the recognition," said Leonard Domina, Highway Angel.
Domina was also given an award for driving 32 million miles.
