“Our drivers are the lifeline of our organization. There isn't enough that can be said about the commitment and sacrifice they each make daily. The completion of these modern, secure, and comfortable facilities is one way that we can say ‘thank you’ to our drivers for their efforts both on the road and in the classroom,” said Steve Dowling, Director, Enterprise Safety Training.

With more than 25 years at Covenant, Hogan served as the company’s president from 2016 to January 2023. Covenant named Hogan Hall in his honor as a tribute to his dedicated service to the organization.

“Truck drivers have chosen a profession that a lot of people don't want to do; it is a critical role that keeps not only Covenant moving, but our economy moving," said Hogan. "No matter what is thrown at them, Covenant’s dedicated team just keeps on driving. I am humbled and honored by this recognition, as it has been a pleasure to serve Covenant in various leadership roles."
