Richard Magers, an OOIDA life member from Novinger, MO, is
Dart Transit’s 2004 Independent Contractor of the Year.
Magers, a 24-year Dart veteran, has two sons who also have
become successful contractors at Dart. Richie and Chris Magers, both of
Novinger, MO, are also OOIDA members.
All three have been recognized by Dart in the past. The
elder Richard was selected as Dart Contractor of the Month back in ’84. Richie
earned the same honor in 2003 and Chris became Contractor of the Month in 2004.
According to the Dart newsletter, less than one percent of
all Dart contractors become Contractors of the Month, so three in one family “is exceptional.”
