We are proud to announce the kickoff of an exciting opportunity to support further achievement in our community. R+L Carriers: Hometown Showcase will provide scholarship opportunities to our local students and showcase a multitude of career paths which exist within the transportation, shipping and logistics industry. R+L Carriers will be visiting Cardinal Middle School during the day on Friday, September 30th. They’ll have their large truck hauler on campus for students to tour and learn about. Students will also attend a brief presentation about the company and learn more about the career opportunities they provide. Following the school visit, the carrier will move over to the football field for the Varsity football game. Along with the carrier, R+L will have other pre-game activities set up for everyone to enjoy.
“As a company founded 50 years ago in small town Wilmington, Ohio, we are thankful to all of the communities, both big and small, that have helped us grow. We would like to show our gratitude by giving back and investing in the success of your hometown, starting with your local high school!” said Greg Bronner, VP of Business Critical Solutions. “We will provide Cardinal students with a college scholarship opportunity, discuss potential career paths within our industry, offer support to your local booster clubs, and of course, offer Hometown Showcase fun!”
The Hometown Showcase honors students and the network of parents, coaches, teachers and school systems that make it possible for young student-athletes to strike a balance between academic and athletic achievement. At the game, R+L will present both Cardinal Middle and High schools with $1,000.00 scholarships and will recognize one outstanding high school student with the Hometown Achievement Award. A $250.00 donation will also be made to the athletic department.
“We are extremely grateful for the time R+L Carriers will spend on our campus and of course for the donations they’ll be making to our District,” says Middle School Principal Dr. Jennifer Sabol. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn more about potential, future careers and then the evening tailgate will be fantastic for our families to come out and enjoy prior to the Hall of Fame football game!”
