Through his volunteer efforts as a Trucker Buddy, Thomas "Hotdog" Barstow, Sr., provides elementary students educational experiences they will remember for a lifetime. His efforts to go far above and beyond the basic guidelines of the Trucker Buddy landed him as the ACS MultiMedia Trucker Buddy Driver of the Month for February 2007.

"It is seldom that partnerships between the business world and schools are as successful as has been that of "Hotdog" and Del Prado Elementary School," said teacher Lenae Breger-Herman. 'tom Barstow is indeed the very model of what a Trucker Buddy should be. His contagious enthusiasm was directly responsible for my class becoming deeply engrossed in the experience."

Barstow was matched with Breger-Herman's kindergarten and 5th grade classes at Del Prado Elementary School in Boca Raton, Fla., during the 2005-06 school year. While this was his first year in the Trucker Buddy program, he took on two classes because they couldn't find a Trucker Buddy of their own. Barstow is matched with Breger-Herman's kindergarten class for the current school year.
