Congratulations are in order for GDA graduates, James Myrick and Jose Salinas! Both James and Jose were named as Steven’s Company Drivers of the month. We’re so proud of them and wish them the best with their careers at Stevens!
Runner-Up Company Driver
James joined Stevens in September of 2019 and graduated from Georgia Driving Academy. James enjoyed the training he received from Georgia Driving Academy and Stevens and was thankful for the assistance that the instructors provided. When we asked James what he attributes to his success, he said: “My two two-year-old sons are my biggest motivators. I’m in a profession that I love to provide for them, and know that they are cheering me on back home.” James also passed along some sound advice for our new drivers: “Pay attention at all times and always take it slow. Also, apply everything that you learn during school and training during your travels, and continually ask questions.” Outside of work, James enjoys playing video games and spending time with his family.

Jose enjoyed the training he received at both Georgia Driving Academy and Stevens and was even able to pass along some of his driving knowledge to his classmates and instructors. When we asked Jose what he attributes to his success, he said: “My family has been a great support system while I have been on the road. Everyone at Stevens, especially my Driver Manager, has also been nothing but amazing, and I am thankful for them every day!” Jose also passed along some sound advice to our new drivers: “This industry will reward you greatly! Explore your opportunities and make sure to ask every question that you can!” Outside of work, Jose enjoys shopping and playing video games.
