2019 Bennett Woman Driver of Excellence Award Recipient
Vallerie Hayden got into driving because of her husband, Harold. He drove for five years and she enjoyed going with him. After raising their children, she started driving with Harold as a team driver. They have been driving together for the last 13 years and have been married for 43 years.
She appreciates Bennett’s safety messages and is the safety director of their team. Vallerie watches out for the speed limits and ensures their hook ups are done correctly. She has over a million miles of safe driving and is in the President’s Million Mile Club at Bennett.
During her driving career, one experience really stands out to her. Vallerie’s husband had to go to the hospital due to a kidney stone. During this incident, it was the first time she had to deliver a load, fuel the truck and drop their trailer all by herself. She says it was quite a learning experience for her.
Vallerie is an excellent, safe driver. She represents Bennett in a very professional manner and tries to help anyone in need. When not working, she and her husband love to go on cruises and attend car shows. They love the Hot Rod Power Tour and have a 2006 Chevy SSR.
Vallerie certainly exemplifies our Woman of Excellence for Bennett Motor Express.
