Professional driver Morris Clark knew the exact moment he wanted to drive for Werner, a memory he recounted after receiving the 2 million safe driving miles award at the Dec. 13 Fourth Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony.
While in truck driver training school, he saw a blue truck and trailer pull in to a truck stop. Clark told his instructor that was the company he was going to work for, if they would have him.
“Blue’s my favorite color, and that was it for me,” he said.
Clark accomplished his safe driving feat through hard work and dedication.
“I listened and read everything that was presented to me by the company and applied it to what I do on the road,” he said.
He offered a bit of safety advice to other drivers – “Control the load. Don’t let the load control you.”
Clark, a proud native of Chesapeake, Va., has driven 22 years for Werner and enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters.
