In-cab satellite TV package provider EpicVue is the exclusive sponsor of the Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Highway Angel program, which recognizes truckers for good deeds, from simple acts of kindness to life-saving heroics.
Highway Angel aims to improve the public’s image of truck driving as a profession by collecting and promoting positive stories about truck drivers who help fellow motorists while out on the road. Highway Angels are presented with a truck decal, lapel pin, clothing patch, and personalized certificate of appreciation. The drivers’ companies also receive a certificate of recognition that they can display in their terminals or offices.
“EpicVue was created to help with the long-haul truck driver’s quality of life, and the rapid and positive response from the industry has inspired us to give back,” said Lance Platt, CEO. “We are proud to associate with an organization that recognizes the good deeds commercial drivers do, and we look forward to helping this great cause.”
EpicVue and TCA will present a newly created award to the Highway Angel who best embodied the spirit of the program for the year 2014 at TCA’s annual convention, March 8-11 at the Gaylord Palms in Kissimmee, Fla.
In addition to a trophy and recognition, this “EpicAngel” will receive a complimentary EpicVue satellite TV package that includes a 24-inch flat screen TV, a DVR, and a one-year subscription to over 100 channels of DirecTV programming, including premium channels such as HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and the NFL Sunday Ticket.
“By choosing to sponsor our program, EpicVue is demonstrating its commitment to the trucking industry and improving the image of the professional truck driver,” said Deborah Sparks, TCA’s vice president of development. “We welcome them as our sponsor and look forward to successful partnership.”
