Trucker Buddy, Boy Scouts Introduce Safety Program

Trucker Buddy International and the Boy Scouts of America said they are introducing a safety program at the Mid-America Trucking Show to help Scouts earn their Truck Transportation and Traffic Safety merit badges at the show.

More than 200 Scouts, parents and Scouting leaders have registered to attend the merit badge classes and afterward will take a tour of the show.

The Scouts will be given instruction on March 29 from Matt Slovack, a Don Hummer Transportation driver, Trucker Buddy Ambassador and certified Scouting instructor on both merit badges.

“This fits perfectly with our mission to improve the image of our industry and encourage young students to excel,” said Randy Schwartzenburg, TBI’s executive director.
