Brian Jackson
Board Member

I have had a special place in my heart for truckers since I was eight years old. Our neighbor was a longhauler for a UP logging company.  It is a tough, lonely occupation.  Highway Connections  Board Members want to give that trucker, male or female a message of redemption and hope.

Bob Huls
Vice President

Bob’s father, Raleigh Huls, was the founder of Highway Melodies, now Highway Connections. He has a heart for Highway Connections because like his father, Bob also is a truck driver.

Bryan has been involved with Highway Connections since January 2013 serving in multiple positions. He has a heart for helping others with their bookkeeping and computer needs.
