Did you know we have royalty here at BAT? Vern Hayes, who joined BAT in December, was his high school’s homecoming king.
Since those glory days, he joined the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, got a degree in management from the University of Northern Iowa, and has gotten certifications from both OSHA and MSSC.
The Sioux City-native believes his communication skills make him great at his job as a logistics representative. In his free time, he enjoys reading and volunteering. His favorite book is The Holy Bible.
It’s hard to believe, but BAT Logistics was started seven years ago this week. We celebrated with BAT Spirit Week, a week full of fun dress-up opportunities, auctions, raffles, and other surprises.
The office was decorated for a party, complete with photos from the past seven years displayed in the shape of the number “7.”
We started the week with Movie Monday, on which we dressed up as movie characters. Rebecca McLean won as Hulk Hogan, star of films like “No Holds Barred” and “WrestleMania 3.”
Then, we showed our support for our favorite sports team on Team Tuesday. Katy Wilson easily won us over with her cheering for two outfit.
On Wednesday, we got to roll out of bed come to work in our pajamas. Even though a few came with their favorite stuffed animals, Katrina Forney’s honest make-up less look and Hello Kitty slippers took the prize on Wonderful Wednesday.
Throwback Thursday gave us a little bit of everything from disco hair to last decade’s striped collared shirts. Shawn’s afro won the day, no matter who was wearing it. (Stephen Sinclair is wearing it in the photo.)
Friday was BAT Pride Day where we wore as much BAT gear as we wanted. Some even made new BAT gear to be dressed head-to-toe in BAT. Everyone was best dressed, so there were extra prizes through the day. We also celebrated with a special lunch for everyone.
Thanks for joining us for our kick off of another year!
