Truck stop to be named for Connecticut trucker

A Connecticut truck driver is set to have a commercial truck stop named in his honor. At a ceremony on Saturday, July 7 at 1:00pm, the TravelCenters of America (TA) truck stop in Branford, CT will be renamed as the “Roland Bolduc Branford Travel Center.” This honor of Mr., who drives for FedEx Express out of Windsor, CT will happen as part of TA’s Citizen Driver program.

TravelCenters launched the Citizen Driver program in 2013 in an effort to honor the many great, hardworking professional truck drivers that keep our economy going. Citizen Drivers not only have an exemplary career in trucking, they are great examples of the kind of people who honor the great profession of truck driving by demonstrating their good citizenship, safety, community involvement, and leadership.

“This recognition of Roland is well-deserved. He lives and breathes trucking safety, as well as community involvement. I know it means a lot to him that the trucking community is supporting him with this award,” said Motor Transport Association of Connecticut (MTAC) President Joseph Sculley.

Mr. Bolduc is the 2017 Grand Champion of the National Truck Driving Championship. This essentially means that he is currently the safest truck driver in the country. New employees at FedEx Express will certainly learn from the best, as Mr. Bolduc often trains drivers who are pursuing their Commercial Driver’s License.

Outside of work, Roland volunteers a lot of his time to trucking-focused causes. He is the Chairman of Connecticut’s Truck Driving Championship committee. He also volunteers and raises money for the Wishes on Wheels convoy to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut. Roland is also a previous recipient of the FedEx Humanitarian Award, among many other honors.

MTAC congratulates Roland Bolduc for earning this great honor.
