Recognition

Occasionally we receive unsolicited reviews of our work and/or employees.
Letter from Professional Truck Driver

I am a driver for Keen Transport, and we are a heavy haul company. We are Caterpillars and Komatsu primary haulers. You have probably seen our trucks traveling up and down I-65 in the areas of your construction zones. If you have not personally seen them, that’s ok but I wanted to make a specific point in regards to your construction zones. I have driven through 48 states and have encountered many types of construction and paving projects. I have yet to come across a paving project that is as large as yours and as well organized. The quality of workmanship and the smoothness of the pavement is exceptional. I have been on many other roads that were just paved and feel worse after paving than before. I just wanted to say thank you to your company for giving us a road to look forward to driving on. I live in Hodgenville Ky. and I drive on the interstate with my family also and its nice to that good qaultiy work is still out there being performed. Thanks again. Bill Niedermayer

Letter from Stranded Motorist

Mr. Doug White from Louisville, KY called the office not long ago to thank Scotty’s Contracting. He and his family were traveling back home to Louisville on Monday, September 2nd (Labor Day) from Dale Hollow Lake when their truck (also towing their boat) broke down on I-65. They were near Cave City when the transmission died. Doug was only able to pull slightly off the road right next to the white line on the highway and found himself in a dangerous situation with cars and trucks passing very close.

Two Scotty’s employees then pulled up and told them they were patrolling the area and immediately offered help. They contacted the KY State Police and called AAA. The two employees then blocked the lane and directed traffic until the tow truck arrived. Mr. White said he believed they saved him and his family’s lives.

Thank you Scotty’s traffic control for being such outstanding citizens and valuable employees!

Letter from Thankful Father

A couple members of our traffic/flagging department have done it again! Ms. Leesa Popp and Ms. Tonya Pannell recently came to the aid of a W.K.U. student whose car broke down on I-65. A couple weeks ago, we received a “thank you” note from a father (Mr. Jim Stevens) of the student. Mr. Stevens was pretty grateful that our Scotty’s employees were around to help. If you are a parent or grandparent, you can easily relate to the fear you go through when the phone rings and it’s one of your children in distress.

The following is a reprint of the “thank you” letter we received:

“Dear Scotty’s,

I wanted to take a few minutes to convey my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to two of your lady employees. On September 9 at around noon my daughter’s car broke down on the Munfordville I-65 exit. She is a 21 year old WKU student and was coming home to Danville for the weekend. I am 100 miles away, and immediately drove to her. When I arrived, these two sweet caring ladies were there helping her, and me, any way they could. They made the phone calls, got me a towing service who towed us back to Danville. Unfortunately, I did not get their names, but I am hoping you can figure out who they are and pass the thank you to them. I know God sent them to us and their generosity will never be forgotten. And in closing, if you could send me their names and addresses I would like to thank them personally.

Sincerely,

Jim Stevens”

THANK YOU, Leesa and Tonya for going the extra mile and providing the assistance you did!
