Trucking's Frontline Heroes 2021
Meet truckers Cully Frisard and Gene Woolsey, Transport Topics' Trucking's Frontline Heroes for 2021.
When Gene Woolsey retired five years ago, he knew his time behind the wheel was not over. But he wanted to transition from making a living to making a difference, and found his opportunity not far from his front doorstep. And now he's one of Trucking's Frontline Heroes.
It was early in Cully Frisard’s transportation career when Hurricane Katrina devastated his home state of Louisiana, but the lessons he learned from that 2005 storm steered his response in September when Hurricane Ida delivered a similar blow to the southeastern state. Now he's one of Trucking's Frontline Heroes.
