About the TUFSOB Scholarship
Did you know that Truckers United Fraternity Super Offspring of the Boss (TUFSOB) has paid over $400,000 in scholarships to over 500 CTA members’ children and adults for their education?
Created by CTA members, the TUFSOB Scholarship Program came about at the 1992 Annual Membership Conference at the Hotel de Coronado in San Diego. The TUFSOB program was the brainchild of Bud Wallace (Cascade Drayage & Warehousing, Inc.), along with Joe Nieves (Quikway Trucking Company), Connie Garcin (Garcin & Associates), and Bob Crites (Condor Freight Lines, Inc.). These four came together, writing out their plan on a cocktail napkin, and implemented a way to raise funds and give grants to the children in the trucking industry.
The TUFSOB scholarships are available for all CTA members’ children in the trucking industry – whether they are allied or carrier members, or trucking company support staff. They even are available to CTA staff member’s children!
Scholarships awarded go towards high school graduates entering college, as well those continuing their college education. The TUFSOB program also supports those that wish to go to trade schools, as well as adults wishing to go to college that are sponsored by a member can also qualify for subsidies. Anyone that supports the trucking industry is considered, as long as they are sponsored by a CTA member company.
TUFSOB’s only fundraiser of the year is conducted in the form of a golf tournament at the Annual Membership Conference. This is the only way this program raises funds for the yearly scholarship grants.
CTA and the TUFSOB Scholarship Program want to continue the tradition of offering financial support towards furthering the educational goals of our future leaders. We have so many member companies that are not aware that they can help assist this program for their children, employees, or children of their workers. Your donations will make a difference!
