Schueller Named Outstanding Trucker Buddy
Verlene Wilson a 3-4 grade teacher at Cornerstone Christian Academy located in Post Falls, Idaho has nominated her Trucker Buddy Michael Schueller located in Rathdrum, Idaho and drives for Alaska West Express based in Anchorage, Alaska.
Ms. Wilson said, “I would like to nominate Trucker Buddy, Michael Schueller for outstanding driver. He has been the Trucker Buddy in my classroom for five years. Faithfully he has sent over 500 postcards and pictures to the kids during this time. He personally writes letters to the kids at least 6 times per year. Our Trucker Buddy is loved by all the kids that have had him as their Trucker Buddy. He is known for bringing cookies to the class each time he visits. Each year he brings his truck for the students to tour. A highlight of their year. One lucky student gets to honk the horn! We invite him to go on field trips with us, which he faithfully does when he is in town.
Mr. Schueller has no kids of this own so he has adopted our class. His wonderful wife who often accompanies him is now fighting cancer. In spite of this he has voiced that he wants to continue to be our Trucker Buddy this year. He deserves to be honored as a special Trucker Buddy.”
