May 28, 2014 – USA Truck, a leading transportation and logistics provider, has awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year to 10 students who are children and dependents of USA Truck team members.

 

Each student received $1,000 through the USA Truck Scholarship Program. This year’s recipients are: Caitlynn Anderson (Ozarks Technical Community College, Springfield, MO); Erin Brown (Kentucky State University, Frankfort, KY); Jocelyn Hall (Patrick Henry Community College, Martinsville, VA); Brooke Kiene (University of Central Arkansas, Conway, AR); Carlishia Lighten (Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA); Christian Penna (University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN); Matthew Phillips (University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Greensboro, NC); Kevin Rogers (University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR); Valeria Toles (Truman State University, Kirksville, MO); and Morgan Walker (Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, FL).

 

Since its inception four years ago, the USA Truck Scholarship Program has awarded $69,000 in scholarships to 47 recipients, demonstrating the company’s ongoing commitment to team member families and to the communities in which they live.

 

“USA Truck is pleased to continue assisting our team members and their families as the scholarship recipients pursue their academic goals,” said Burton Weis, Vice President of Human Resources for USA Truck. “With the rising cost of higher education, every contribution matters. Continuing our support through this program is one way USA Truck can help make a difference. We wish this year’s recipients all the best for 2014-15 and beyond.”

 

The program is offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice. Up to 10 awards of $1,000 each are granted to students attending a two-year technical college or vocational technical school and students attending a four-year college or university. Nationally recognized Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America, reviews the applicants and selects scholarship recipients.
