3-28HINES BQT 053

 

PRESCOTT – It was a return to the 1950s for the Hines Awards Banquet Saturday night as the Southwest District Coliseum was decorated with a “Happy Days” type theme.

The meal was again catered by Woods of Camden with plenty of chicken, fish and all the trimmings, not to mention cotton candy and popcorn. The coliseum was filled and those gathered had fun as there was an abundance of door prizes to go along with the awards handed out on the night. “Name that Tune” was played with the winner taking home an Elvis bobblehead, and the other participants getting gift cards

RECOGNITION OF OFFICE STAFF

Their “behind the scenes” hard work and dedication to making HTI the best trucking company in the country often goes unnoticed, and many times under-appreciated in the trucking industry. However, they are vital to our success. Without them, phones wouldn’t be answered, bills wouldn’t be paid, customers wouldn’t be acquired, paychecks wouldn’t be distributed, backgrounds wouldn’t be checked, insurance questions would be ignored, loads wouldn’t be planned.
