In 2016 during a hurricane we were able to show our truck to over 25 Girl Scouts, their parents, and their siblings. What truly amazed me is that the weather was horrible but every girl that signed up attended. It was fun to watch all of the umbrellas that were over each of the girls as they made the short journey to our truck to view the inside and ask questions.
This year, 2017, the weather was much nicer. First, we told the girls some of the highlights of the truck inside and outside. We told them a little about our business and then the girls were split up into three groups. One group sat in with marketing and the women involved in promoting Freightliners, and then they listened to another lady who is the part of the management team of the plants that make our trucks.
As we stood at the front of this group of young ladies what excited me was how many parents where in the room with their daughters. Family support is essential
