ATIL Hall of Fame Chair Tom Mullen (Linesville, PA) and Vice Chair John Vannatta (Leonardtown, MD), announced at the ATHS Awards Banquet earlier this month that the following pioneers would be honored during an induction ceremony at the ATHS home office in Kansas City, Missouri on October 26, 2022.

“All previous inductees will be invited as well. We will see it grow each year as we honor more of the trucking industry's leaders,” said Mullen.

“The Hall of Fame was a dream just a few years ago, and it's finally happening. The ATHS Visitor Center will be a place for the public to not only visit the Zoe James Memorial Library but to learn about trucking industry pioneers in the ATIL Hall of Fame and find their own family and friends' names in our Participating Partners display of awardees. This is made possible with funding from our Visionary Partner, Cummins and Participating Partners, Walmart Transportation, Women in Trucking, with more companies interested. This is an exciting time for ATHS,” said Vannatta.

“Recognizing the trucking professional's contributions to society and the economy, as well as the pioneers who laid the foundation for the trucking industry are at the core of the ATIL Hall of Fame,” said Executive Director Laurence Gration.
