Bob Craig receives MDA award

Bob Craig, general manager of Derrick’s Travel Plaza on Peeler Road, was honored Jan. 25 for his work with the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Ruthie Mihal, district director of MDA, presented Craig with a letter from Jerry Lewis, thanking him for his tireless and determined efforts over the past twenty-five years to raise funds for children and adults affected by neuromuscular disease and his participation in the “Shamrocks Against Dystrophy” program. This is the mobile program where customers are asked to purchase a paper shamrock for $1. They write their name on the shamrock and the store displays them.

The Derrick Travel Plaza is the highest selling single location in the Charlotte area. Last year they raised $4,000.
