Bruce Wehner Named Trucker Buddy Of The Month
Bruce Wehner, a driver for Cliff Viessman, Inc., of S.D., has been named December 2012 Trucker Buddy of the Month following his nomination by Rose Wenzel and her Assumption BVM Catholic School’s first and second grade classes in Pulaski, Wisc.
Wenzel gives four reasons why Wehner deserves to be awarded this honor. “First, he writes us once every week but these letters are not just brief snapshots of his trucking experiences. They are lengthy and detailed diaries of his of his endeavors and expeditions!” says Wenzel. “My students are captivated by his writing skills and precise choice of language to illustrate his journeys. He also converses with us through weekly emails; my students love to read his email on our smart board!”
The second reason Wenzel says she nominated Wehner is that he shares his experiences he had as a student with her class. “We know his favorite subjects as a child and the topics which caused him a little learning grief,” she says. “If we could, we would add him as an addition to our multi-age classroom.”
Thirdly, Wehner sends photos to help the class understand the structure of the truck, his love for his wife and animals, and his quest to share his treasures in life.
“Finally, he expresses his commitment to education by always reminding us to study hard and to daily do our best,” Wenzel says. “He is an inspiring role model and my students and I eagerly await his trip to Pulaski.”
Congratulations to Bruce Wehner for being awarded the Trucker Buddy of the Month for December 2012.
