Sandy and Ken Cook, team drivers for FedEx National LTL out of Middletown, Pa., have been named Trucker Buddy Drivers of the Month for November.
Matched with Sandy Zambotti’s fourth-grade students at East Side Elementary School for more than a decade, they began their 11th year in the program by taking time during a two-week vacation in Europe to continue sending postcards. The Cooks take time at the beginning of each school year to visit the school in Johnstown, Pa. They meet the students, and they return in the late spring to say goodbye.
Each Trucker Buddy Driver of the Month receives a personalized jacket, along with a check for $300 to spend on the class and $200 in Trucker Buddy merchandise, compliments of program sponsor ACS MultiMedia Advertising. They also receive an IdleAire window adaptor and a free Gold Membership, a Koolatron cooler and a complete set of Airtabs for their tractor or trailer.
