<p style="background:white"><span style="font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;"> </span></p>

 

<p style="margin-top:12.0pt;background:white"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Plover, WI (April 7, 2016)— The mission of Women In Trucking

Association (WIT) is to encourage the employment of women in the trucking

industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize obstacles faced by women

in the trucking industry. The purpose of the Image Team is to represent these

goals while bringing awareness of the need for more female drivers and the

challenges they face working in a male dominated environment.</span><span style="font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;"><o:p></o:p></span></p>

 

<p style="margin-top:12.0pt;background:white"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">The WIT Image Team participates in ride-along events for

legislators, regulators, and industry leaders to provide a deeper understanding

of the obstacles they face on the road. They also speak to the media and other

industry professionals at public events and industry trade shows.</span><span style="font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;"><o:p></o:p></span></p>

 

<p style="margin-top:12.0pt;background:white"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">To qualify for the WIT Image Team, the applicant must be a member

of WIT for at least one year and submit an application. The application

required an essay of 250 words to explain why she should be chosen for the

Image Team. Questions regarding their safety records, previous awards or

recognitions, volunteer service, and community involvement were included in the

selection process. All positions held in the trucking industry were considered

in addition to professional drivers.</span><span style="font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;"><o:p></o:p></span></p>

 

<p style="margin-top:12.0pt;background:white"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Top scoring applicants were advanced to the next round of the

selection process, which required an interview with the judging panel. The

judges consisted of Mark Rousseau, Frito-Lay, Linda Caffee, Landstar Express America,

Tom Liutkus, TravelCenters of America, Patrick Pendergast, Ryder System, Inc.,

and Stan Hampton, J.B. Hunt Transport.</span><span style="font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;"><o:p></o:p></span></p>

 

<p style="margin-top:12.0pt;background:white"><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">"I was honored to be part of the selection process. There

were so many terrific candidates. Drivers and other professionals who are

devoted to this industry and have such high personal and professional

standards,” said Tom Liutkus, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Public

Relations, TravelCenters of America. “WIT is blessed to be represented by such

a fine group of women as is the trucking industry." <br>
