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 Nievez (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 award grants to trucking's next generation.

Scholarship awards 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.


The TUFSOB scholarship program would not be possible without donations from members and industry supporters like you. Help to continue the tradition of offering financial support to further the educational goals of trucking's next generation and our future leaders. Your donations make a difference!
