“My thanks go to all of them for their dedication and focus and for the countless lives they’ve saved,” said Jrinda Shaw, president, UPS Central Plains District. “Their attention to detail has kept them safe and has helped improve public safety.”

Robert Valley of Springfield and Donald Wisdom of Washington are the state’s senior-most safe drivers, each with 42 years of accident-free driving under their belts.

Globally, 9,349 active UPS drivers are members of the "Circle of Honor." Collectively they’ve racked up 266,554 years and nearly 14 billion safe miles during their careers; that’s enough miles to travel to the moon and back almost 29,000 times.
