Driver Spotlight: Lawrence Bush

Dedicated Driver Celebrates 26 Years Becoming Part of the Stevens Family

For many, the decision to join the transportation industry as a professional truck driver is not an easy one to make. For Lawrence Bush, that decision was one of the easiest he has ever had to make. “I really enjoyed driving, ever since an early age,” Bush said. “I learned how to drive when I was about 11 or 12, and when I learned that I could make driving my career, I didn’t think twice about it.”

Lawrence obtained his CDL by attending truck driving school at United Truck Masters in St. Petersburg, FL. Once he completed his training, there was no doubt in his mind that he would not join Stevens. “I saw one of their trucks pass by my school at least once a day, and I always dreamed of getting behind the wheel of one of their nice trucks once I graduated.”

Dream Become Reality

Lawrence made that dream a reality in September of 1992 when he joined the Stevens family. Ever since then, Lawrence has never pictured himself anywhere else. “The family atmosphere at Stevens is what I enjoy the most,” Lawrence said. “Since my first day during orientation, I have always received support from everyone at Stevens. I plan on driving for them until I am not able to drive anymore!”

Favorite Memory from the Journey

26 years later, Lawrence has traveled throughout the country, delivering loads to 48 states, and has amassed over two million miles with Stevens. When we asked Lawrence what his favorite memory from the road is, he said, “I remember the first time I saw the nighttime lighted skyline in California. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen, and I always make it a priority to see it whenever I travel through there.”

Life Outside of the Truck

When Lawrence is not driving, you can find him relaxing at home or spending time with his family in his hometown of Fort Worth, TX. “My family means the world to me, and I cherish every moment that I am able to spend with them. I’m thankful for Stevens for allowing me to spend time with my family when I ask for it.”

Thank you for all of your hard work Lawrence and we wish you continued success in the future!
