From Farm to Family Table: Asia and Mahogany Scroggins, Twin Truck Drivers
MORGAN WATCHOUS, Communications Manager, Poultry Public Relations
Asia and Mahogany Scroggins are 24-year-old twin truck drivers, committed to each other, their jobs and our customers. To learn more about trucking from this dynamic duo, they opened their door and let me climb in for a quick Q&A.
Q: What is your favorite thing about driving?
Asia: I love feeding America. I love being able to move this food up and down the road and know that tonight a mom will be feeding her kids with food we delivered.
Mahogany: I love traveling and seeing the country. Our childhood wasn’t perfect. For a long time, I thought Dallas was all there was. I get a kick out of seeing different cities and meeting new people.
Q: Any favorite cities, so far?
Mahogany: If you’d asked me a couple weeks ago, I would’ve said Cincinnati. Go Bengals! But now, I have to say New York City. There are so many people and cultures. The city is so alive.
Asia: Cincinnati! It’s just so pretty. We were driving from Columbus at night and there was nothing around us. Then, there were all these lights from the skyline. It was amazing.
Q: What's it like driving for Tyson Foods?
We didn’t know much about Tyson before truck driving school. Since then, we’ve learned about the company and met other drivers who have driven for the company for 10-15 years and Tyson has been good to them. We’re 23 and Tyson has been very good to us.
Our truck recently broke down in West Virginia. Our team knew I had an important meeting the next day in Dallas and they didn’t want me to miss it. Tyson paid for us to fly home out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The company didn’t have to do that.
We’re not only feeding America, but we’re growing up on the road – Tyson is giving us the chance to do it with them.
