OC News: July 2018

Q2 Design Award

Each quarter, OC employees vote on top cap designs. For Q2, we chose a Bass Pro cap designed and developed by Eldon Cowgur, Hannah Hobson, and Christie Regan.


Reverse Job Shadow Event

Grant Cottrell and Ryan Mahoney represented OC at George Junior High School in Springdale on May 18th. Sponsored by Junior Achievement of Arkansas, this was an event in which professionals gave presentations to students about their role and experience. Grant works in our Protect Design department and Ryan is on the Marketing team.   

Cancer Challenge Trapshoot Tournament

On June 14th, three OC teammates participated in a trapshoot tournament for The Cancer Challenge which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

  • Steven Alderson
  • Josh Dover
  • Grand Cottrell


Team Member of the Quarter

Every 3 months, our Distribution Centers (DCs) elect a team member who went above and beyond for his or her teammates and customers.

Winners are chosen based on adherence to safety initiatives, productivity, reliability, attendance, quality of work, and attitude. 

The winners receive a gift card, framed certificate, and OC T-shirt, and their own street sign, which gets hung above an aisle in the DC. The 2nd quarter winner for 2018 was James Childs.IMG_7115
