Carroll and Dora Bean are the March 2006 Trucker Buddy Drivers of the Month. The Beans have shared their experiences on the road with Linda Merrill’s third-grade class at Overland Elementary School in Rock Springs, Wyo., for the last seven years.
The Beans live in Alburg, Vt., and are owner-operators leased to FedEx Custom Critical in Green, Ohio. They both competed in the 2005 Vermont Truck Driving Championships, with Carroll placing first and Dora taking second.
Each Trucker Buddy Driver of the Month receives a personalized jacket, $300 to spend on the class, $200 in Trucker Buddy merchandise, an IdleAire adapter, a Koolatron cooler, a complete set of Airtabs, Donde Publishing’s “For the Long Haul” and an
Accident Photo pack. The class will receive a CrossCountry USA game.
