TO CONGRATULATE Warren Crane FOR achieving walmart's five million safe miles milestone.


Whereas, the South Carolina Senate is pleased to learn that Warren Crane has achieved Walmart's five million safe miles milestone, becoming Walmart's second driver ever to achieve this rare milestone; and


Whereas, a native of Danielsville, Georgia, Mr. Crane has worked for Walmart for thirty-six years and has worked at Transportation Office #6815 in Laurens his entire career. On average, it takes truck drivers an average of over forty years to drive five million miles. Mr. Crane achieved this milestone within an impressive thirty-six years; and


Whereas, five million safe miles equates to driving across the United States coast to coast approximately two thousand times. By driving five million safe miles, Mr. Crane has driven the equivalent of eighty-eight million football fields without being tackled; and


Whereas, Mr. Crane is a testament to the importance of safety, dedication, and teamwork in the private fleet. His philosophy is to take driving "one mile at a time, one day at a time," remaining focused and dedicated to safety. He believes in the power of teamwork, frequently crediting his success to the support of his fellow associates, from the shop, to the warehouse, to the safety managers; and


Whereas, Mr. Crane's commitment to safety extends beyond his personal driving. He has represented Walmart and the private fleet in safety organizations such as Together for Safer Roads, even ringing the closing bell on Wall Street in August of 2018 as a representative. He was one of the first drivers to train fellow drivers on the driving simulator and toured the country training drivers; and


Whereas, despite his impressive achievements, Mr. Crane remains humble and ready to share his wisdom with the next generation of drivers. His advice to new drivers is to slow down, stay focused, and always be aware of their surroundings. He emphasizes the importance of building a safety record from day one and taking pride in their work. Mr. Crane plans to continue driving safely and aims to reach six million safe miles before retiring; and


Whereas, in his free time, Mr. Crane enjoys spending time with his family, including his grandchildren. He continues to have a deep respect for the company started by Sam Walton, recalling the time he met Mr. Sam and the impact his values have had on the Walmart culture; and


Whereas, the Senate is grateful for Mr. Crane's dedicated service to the people and the State of South Carolina and takes great pleasure in saluting him for reaching the five million safe miles milestone.  Now, therefore,


Be it resolved by the Senate:


That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, congratulate Warren Crane for achieving Walmart's five million safe miles milestone.


Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Warren Crane.
