When Tonnie Thompson started working at The Shippers Group in 1974, President Richard Nixon resigned in the wake of the Watergate scandal and Gerald Ford became POTUS. Gas was only $.55 per gallon and a dozen eggs cost $.78. That year the Miami Dolphins defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the Superbowl and The Godfather Part 2 was one of the year's most popular movies. During Tonnie's years at The Shippers Group a lot has changed but one thing that has remained consistent is Tonnie's work ethic and dedication to do his best work every day.
