OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 28, 2014-- Professional Werner driver Charley Endorf, of Fairbury, Neb., has been selected as a recipient of the 2014 Citizen Driver Award. The award program, presented by Travel Centers of America/Petro, recognizes professional long-haul drivers who inspire public respect and admiration for the truck driving profession.

"I was so honored to be nominated by my Werner team, and I will do my best as a winner to uphold the distinction and represent my company and industry," Endorf said. "I give a lot of credit to my wife, Kay, and thank TA/Petro for this award."

Endorf was recognized for his exemplary citizenship in the driving community, personal and professional leadership, community involvement and commitment to lead a healthy lifestyle. He was honored at a special event at the 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show, being held March 27-29 in Louisville, Ky.
