Area Girl Scouts now have another patch to show they learned about something new. Marvin Keller Trucking recently partnered with the Women in Trucking Association to sponsor a Trucks are for Girls Event for local Girl Scouts on Saturday, May 19th. Marvin Keller invited Girl Scout troops from Moultrie and Shelby Counties for a fun-filled morning of learning. The purpose of the event was to teach the girls about the importance of trucking to our economy while they were able to get an up close view of a tractor-trailer. At the event, the Girl Scouts visited several activity stations throughout the Marvin Keller facility. They received their own dispatch, saw a pre-trip inspection, got to climb in a trailer, and even took a ride in a semi-truck. Volunteers who work at Marvin Keller were on site to help the Girl Scouts with the activities and answer any questions they had about the transportation industry. They wrapped up the day with lunch that was catered by Griffin’s BBQ Crew Catering. The girls each received a Transportation Patch, which was created by the Women in Trucking Association in 2014. The Marvin Keller team hopes they left with a better understanding of what keeps America moving and perhaps evolve into a future career in distribution, logistics, commercial driving, or other rewarding occupations.
