“I am greatly honored and humbled to receive this recognition,” Edwards said. “I want to thank my family for their support and patience, J.B. Hunt for providing me with the opportunity and leadership, and Women In Trucking for all they do to make driving a better career option for women.” 

The first J.B. Hunt driver to be recognized with the honor, Edwards began her intermodal driving career with the company in 1998. She is one of three drivers to receive the WIT distinction this year.
