Olen Ruddell was honored last month as the 2019 Arkansas Oil Marketers Driver of the Year. The selection is chosen from all the drivers in the state of Arkansas. Ruddell has been an oil driver for 39 years and currently drives for Farmers Oil of Newport. His position carries him throughout a large territory including Heber Spring and Blytheville, putting in close to 50 or 60 hours a week. Olen Ruddell and his wife, Belinda, are loved and respected by all. This honor is well-deserved and was a surprise to Olen. “He is a God-fearing marine veteran that is dedicated, humble, caring, and so much more,” states co-worker Dewayne Smith. Congratulations Olen!
