PMTA Honors Top Drivers, Names Driver Of The Year For 2022
CAMP HILL -- The Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association honored 12 Drivers of the Month and named the 2022 Driver of the Year on March 22 at the Penn Harris Hotel in Camp Hill. The Driver of the Year Banquet is sponsored by Sentry Insurance.
This year’s 12 drivers have combined to drive more than 24 million miles – literally to the moon and back 50 times. It would take the International Space Station, which travels at about 17,500 MPH, nearly TWO MONTHS to travel that many miles.
The 12 Drivers of the Month are as follows:
January: Michael Cable – Ward Trucking
February: Jordan Weber – Lester R. Summers, Inc
March: James Roseberry – Vorzik Transport, Inc
April: John Maiorano – Pitt Ohio
May: Bryan Horninger – Ward Trucking
June: Bernard Paul Wanyo, Jr. – UPS
July: David Wilt – Lester R. Summers, Inc
August: Christopher Hodle – Walmart Transportation
September: John McClinton – FedEx Ground
October: Donald Weaver – Vorzik Transport, Inc.
November: Michael Zinz – Klapec Trucking Co.
December: Michael Weingartner – Pitt Ohio
The 2022 Driver of the Year is Donald Ray Weaver from Vorzik Transport, Inc. Weaver, of Duncanville, has been a professional driver since 1978 and has been with Vorzik Transportation since 2019. In his 44 years on the road, he has logged more than 3.7 million and only been involved in one incident when another vehicle side swiped his trailer in 2020. He has earned a Three Year Safe Driving Award with Vorzik, a Five Year Safe Driving Award with FedEx Ground and a 10 Year Safe Driving Award with US Foods.
“Don is a very safe driver and is willing to help anyone,” said Dale Knox, Safety Specialist. “Don is no stranger to anyone; he always has a smile on his face and always will give you a handshake. Mr. Weaver has been an inspiration to the whole Vorzik Team whether it’s the drivers or the management team. Everyone of us at Vorzik looks up to him.”
