Highways Heroes are delighted to announce that BakerHicks have agreed to return as sponsor of the prestigious Kevin Jarvis Hero in Highways Award, the highlight of the glittering ceremony.

Named after Kevin Jarvis, a traffic safety officer who last his life following a high speed vehicle incursion, the special award is decided by the founder, chair and head judges of the ceremony Hero in Highways award which will be bestowed upon one individual whose triumph over adversity is an inspiration to us all.

Speaking about the Award, Kevin Robinson, one of the founders of the Highways Heroes Award said,

"You think as the event director of the Highways Heroes you have seen it all and then somebody comes along and truly floors you with a story of sheer triumph over adversity and a bloody mindedness that life simply will not beat them and despite the significant challenges they face this individual is going to win no matter what.

"Not an act of random kindness, not somebody who has gone above and beyond whilst not once asking for thanks but instead but whose back story simply moves you to say wow.

"Without giving too much away, this year's winner is somebody whose achievements truly moved the two of us to tears when we heard their story and as such we felt, in the true spirit of the ceremony we could not let this individual go unnoticed."

"The highways sector is a key industry for the prosperity of our nation, with major roads forming the backbone of our country, and local roads as its lifeblood. This is an exciting sector to work in, and awards such as Highways Heroes drum home the premise of what we all do – keeping everyone connected, creating real communities and contributing to the growth of our economy.

At BakerHicks, we are incredibly proud to play a part in this unique celebration and by sponsoring the Hero in Highways Award, we recognise the strength and determination of one very brave individual. I look forward to meeting them at the awards in November."
