UPS honored 17 “elite drivers” from Arizona among 1,316 newly inducted worldwide into the Circle of Honor, an honorary organization for UPS drivers who have achieved 25 or more years of accident-free driving.
Arizona boasts 153 Circle of Honor drivers with a combined 3,915 years of accident-free driving. Mark Woolston of Glendale is the state’s senior-most safe driver, with 44 years of accident-free driving under his belt. There are 1,986 total full-time UPS drivers in Arizona.
“I can’t say enough about all the men and women who were inducted this year,” said Scott Bremerman, president, UPS West Region. “Their dedication to safe driving on America’s roadways keeps them safe, improves public safety and sets a high standard for professional drivers.”
Globally, the most seasoned UPS Circle of Honor driver is Thomas Camp of Livonia, Mich., with 57 years of driving without an accident. Ronald McKnight of Bronx, N.Y., is next in line with 51 years of safe driving. One hundred fifty-nine others have logged at least 40 years without an accident.
