Five women have been chosen to be the members of Women In Trucking’s Image Team, the organization announced. The Image team will participate in public events for legislators, regulators and industry leaders to further the mission of WIT.
The 2015 Women In Trucking Image Team members are Stephanie Klang of Con-way Truckload, Allyson Hay of Walmart Transportation, Wyzeena Heeny of Covenant Transport, Carol Nixon of Walmart Transportation and Ingrid Brown of Rollin’ B LLC.
“These drivers will help the WIT Association advance our mission,” said Mark Roussea, director of Logistics and Transportation at Frito Lay and WIT board member. “In addition, the WIT Image Team will assist the industry in improving trucking’s image by changing perceptions about truck drivers and their jobs.”
Twenty-five applications were submitted to WIT for the image team. The number was narrowed down to ten finalists and then a selection committee interviewed them before choosing the five Image Team members.
The team was announced at the 6th annual Salute to Women Behind the Wheel hosted by Women In Trucking to honor female commercial drivers.
“These women are true pioneers for not just WIT, but for the trucking industry,” said Roussea. “We congratulate them on their selection to this very impactful role.”
