Professional Driver Clifford Bosecker Earns Humanitarian Award

On Aug. 1, 2015, Werner professional driver Clifford Bosecker was driving on I‐74 in Indiana when a pickup sped past him and struck another car from behind. The car rolled three times and landed in the ditch, and the pickup left the scene. Clifford instructed his student to call 911 while he stopped to assist the family.

One of the passengers, the daughter, was attempting to climb out of the vehicle, but Clifford helped her lie down to avoid further injury. He assessed the scene for smoke and gas leaks before tending to the two remaining passengers, a father and mother.

One was conscious and strapped in his seat belt upside down, so Clifford carefully removed him and laid him down. The other was conscious outside of the vehicle, so he encouraged her to lie down as well.

Clifford utilized both his first aid training from the Marines and a small medical kit from his truck to provide care until the paramedics arrived. He then provided a clear description of the pickup to local police, who were able to apprehend the suspects a few miles down the road.

For his heroic actions on that day, Bosecker, a Werner driver since 2010, was honored with a Humanitarian Award at the Dec. 8 Fourth Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony.

“I am humbled by the honor and was just doing what was right,” Bosecker said.

George Stutts – 2 Million Accident-Free Miles

Werner professional driver George Stutts is easy going and good humored, but behind the wheel he’s a serious professional committed to safety.

It’s that dedication that helped him earn the 2 million accident-free miles award
at the Dec. 8 Fourth Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony.

“I am proud to get to this goal, but my main goal is to move freight,” he said. “I just take it one day at a time.”

A Werner driver since 1997, Stutts has trained more than 245 students and passed on his talent and knowledge to the next generation.

The native of Tuscumbia, Alabama, enjoys old cars and spending time with his pride and joy – his two granddaughters.

James Moses – 2 Million Accident-Free Miles

While safety has been a great motivator for Werner professional driver James Moses, he also credits the positive working relationships he shares with his co-workers for his success.

At the Dec. 8 Fourth Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony, he received the 2 million accident-free miles award and credited another reason for his success and commitment to safety.

“I was just doing my job so I could get home to my family safe and sound,” he said.

Moses, a Werner driver since 1988, offered several safety tips to help other drivers succeed.

“Don’t rely on your GPS alone,” he said. “Use a map. Get plenty of rest, plan your trip and always do a pre-trip.”

When not on the road, Moses enjoys cooking, volunteering for Habit for Humanity and for his church and cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs. Moses and his wife, Gwen, reside in Plain Dealing, Louisiana, with their four children, 13 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and eight foster-grandchildren.

Michael Blaisdell – 2 Million Accident-Free Miles

Werner professional driver Michael Blaisdell was presented with a 2 million accident-free miles award at the Dec. 8 Fourth Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony.

His career is a mix of both experience and perspective, as he spent several years working in Werner’s Safety Department in addition to his time behind the wheel.

“Plan your drive, and drive your plan,” he said. “Don’t let anyone get you in a hurry.”

Blaisdell has been with the company since 1998 and has trained 61 students.

“One million miles was a goal,” he said. “And then, I started working toward 2. It’s a privilege.”

An eight-year Navy veteran and father of two sons, Blaisdell resides in Omaha, Nebraska, and enjoys watching old John Wayne movies.
