    A self-professed night owl for more than 30 years, Gemini Motor Transport Fuel Driver Eddie Johnson delivers fuel to Love’s locations all around a large swath of Texas and Oklahoma while most of us sleep. He joined #TeamLoves nine years ago after a conversation with Regional Manager Tim Sayles at a terminal. “At Gemini, I feel like I’m working with the best in the business,” Eddie said. While Eddie sees #BlackHistoryMonth as a year-long celebration, the month of February is especially about reflecting on the figures across history who have shaped success and the Black identity, from civil rights icons and politicians to actors and entrepreneurs. When he is not putting in the long hours and miles in a yellow Gemini big rig, Eddie pursues his passion for barbecue as a business owner. He started up his barbecue company, “No Sauce Needed,” five years ago at the urging of his wife. “I’ve always loved barbecue, and she told me if I’m going to be making so much of it , I better start selling it,” Eddie said. Eddie spends most of his weekends delivering barbecue around Fort Worth.

    Ariel Webb, Chester’s assistant manager at Love’s 236 in North Little Rock, says her happy-go-lucky personality and positive outlook serve her well as she helps recruit and develop restaurant team members. “When it comes to leading others, I believe you should first and foremost exude respect and treat people the way you want to be treated,” Ariel said. Seeing her employees succeed and grow in their career is her favorite part of her job. She feels happy at the end of every day, no matter what challenges come her way. Love’s is the first company she’s worked at where she feels like part of a big family. She has benefited firsthand from her managers’ focus on career development, having started as a Godfather’s Pizza team member before being promoted to her current role. Every Black History Month, Ariel looks forward to a big family reunion, where her and her many cousins listen to stories from their grandfather, who just turned 105-years-old. “He’s really taught us to be grateful how the times have changed for the better, especially when it comes to our rights and freedoms.”

    Many years ago and thousands of miles away, ambition sparked inside Violeta Bingham. That ambition and drive would stick with her all the way to Love’s corporate offices. Originally from the eastern European nation of Bulgaria, Violeta immigrated to Venezuela as a child. A meet-cute, marriage and move later, Violeta found herself in the Sooner State. And she was set on a career as a buyer. Years of persistence lead her to her now role at Love’s: merchandising planner. If a role in her dream field wasn’t enough positivity for your timeline, you’ll be delighted to hear Violeta recently passed her U.S. Citizenship Test. Just as she now calls the U.S. home, she’s made quite the home at Love’s, too. "I am grateful for the patience and understanding from those who work with me," Violeta said. "As someone who is ESL, I might make a grammar mistake on an email from time to time, but no one makes fun of me. That experience is something you don't get everywhere. I see firsthand the inclusiveness at Love's, and that's reflected in the diversity of the people I interact with."

    As part of Love’s celebration of #IndigenousPeoplesDay, hundreds of employees from across the country attended a virtual tour, presentation and open discussion led by James Pepper Henry, the executive director and chief executive officer of the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City. Employees heard a high-level overview of the cultural diversity, history and contributions of the First Americans. Love’s connection to the First Americans Museum is deeper than a one-day experience though. During the museum’s capital campaign, Love’s donated $1 million to continue First Americans education in its home state. Thank you, James Pepper Henry, for your time and knowledge today. This experience is another way Love’s is fostering an inclusive culture.

    Indigenous Peoples’ Day recognizes Native people are the first inhabitants of the Americas, including the lands that later became the United States of America. Dennis W. Zotigh and Renee Gokey wrote in Smithsonian Magazine, “the importance of celebrating the survival and contemporary experience of Native peoples has never been clearer.” From leading restaurant teams to managing taxes and finances, Native American employees and customers have a vast impact on this organization. Today, we preserve history, celebrate the present and look toward the future. Stay tuned as Love’s shares an exciting virtual experience its employees had to further educate themselves on #IndigenousPeoplesDay.

    “I wanted to share my story to show how inclusive Love’s is,” said Aidee Salas Montoya, Love’s supervisor of customer accounting. Aidee is from San Blas, Nayarit, Mexico, which is a fishing village off the Pacific Coast. Her family immigrated to the United States when she was young. “I attended elementary school in South Central Los Angeles where I didn’t speak any English my first couple of years,” Aidee said. “Later on, we made Oklahoma City our home.” Within two years of joining #TeamLoves, she was promoted to supervisor of customer accounting. Love’s Manager of Retail Billing Loren Dougherty has experienced firsthand the impact Aidee has made on the company. “Aidee is an extremely positive and hardworking leader for our team,” Loren said. “She does an excellent job of building up and empowering our personnel to ensure top efficiency from everyone. She truly embodies the Love’s culture and what we hope for in all our employees."

    “Both of my maternal grandparents immigrated from Mexico and became U.S. citizens in the early 1900s. Celebrating my heritage, especially during National Hispanic Heritage Month is so important to my family, because we want to pass the traditions and values we learned on to future generations,” said Jerry Hamm, senior manager of technology innovation for Love’s. Jerry learned the importance of pride in his family’s history and to appreciate what he has from his parents – both who are of Mexican descent - and his grandparents who survived the Spanish Flu, Dust Bowl and Great Depression. “My grandparents and parents taught me the value of working hard to provide a better life for their children and that’s what I’ve worked to do throughout my life for my family,” Jerry said. His heritage also instilled in him the want and need to help those around him, and that’s what he’s done in his 14 years at Love’s. In his time with the company, Jerry has helped create and launch several products that make customers' experiences at Love’s faster and cheaper.
