Longview,TX — Longview sanitation driver Cris Hudson has been behind the wheel of a big truck all of her adult life, and she’s not about to switch gears now.
Her ability to maneuver large trucks up and down Longview roads is taking her all the way to Lexington, Ky. in September, where she will represent Texas in the International Road-E-O competition.
Before reaching nationals, Hudson placed second in the annual “Road-E-O” state competition, sponsored by The Texas Solid Waste Association of North America.
She will be the first from the city’s sanitation department to represent Longview at nationals.
