2017 Queen of the Road and Trucking Industry Trailblazer Award Recipients

  1. 1. President’s Choice Award
  2. 2. The Winners
  3. 3.  The purpose for creating the Queen of the Road Awards was to create a dignified recognition award for women who work as truck drivers that have not only overcome personal challenges, but who also have demonstrated a “Pay it Forward” approach to help others by sharing their wisdom. These women exemplify the definition of “Servant Leadership”.  “Servant Leaders” are defined by Robert K. Greenleaf as individuals who naturally want to serve others first and secondly they make a conscious choice to lead. A servant leader is sharply different from those who lead first, and are driven by ego, the need for power, money and to acquire material possessions.  “Giving Back” by providing accurate information to those who are struggling to find their way through truck driver training has been the cornerstone of the REAL Women in Trucking organization.  Adversity is one element many individuals have experienced in their lives, but only the special few who take the time to give back with gratitude by helping someone else.
  4. 4.  R.E.A.L. represents authenticity, REAL women help one another, they are not jealous of another woman’s success, they are motivated by it.  R. Reaching Out E. Encouraging Others A. Achieving Personal Success L. Leadership
  5. 5. “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.” ~ Madeline Albright
