CALEDONIA, Ont. -- Kim Richardson, president of KRTS Transportation Specialists, will be presented with the Queen’s Jubilee medal during a special ceremony Nov. 17.

Richardson was nominated for the prestigious award for his extensive community involvement.

The award goes to Canadians who make significant contributions to their community and fellow citizens.

“Being nominated for the Queen’s Jubilee Medal is quite an honour,” Richardson told Trucknews.com. “When I received the letter, you could have knocked me over with a feather. I am very fortunate to be surrounded by so many great friends, members of our community, business associates, and family who are always all-hands-on-deck when it comes to initiatives we get involved with. This medal and recognition is not mine, it is ours.”

In my almost thirty years in the trucking industry Inhave never met a person with so much passion about the trucking world. A true mentor for any driver and trainer in this industry. Congrats to you Kim, a career well done.
