Three Big Island UPS Drivers Honored for Safe Driving
Four Hawai’i United Parcel Service drivers have been inducted into the worldwide Circle of Honor.
Three UPS drivers who work in Kailua-Kona made the list, along with one from Honolulu. The Circle of Honor is an honorary organization for UPS drivers who have more than 25 years of accident-free driving.
Glen Muraki of Kamuela and Brian Taketa of Kealakekua were inducted, along with Myron Yamagushi of Holualoa. The trio works in Kona.
Matthew Kim, who is from Haleiwa and works in Honolulu, was also inducted.

Two of the 11 drivers, Dean Agustin of Lihue and Malcolm Toyama of Honolulu, are the top safest drivers in the state, each having 31 years of accident-free driving.
Over 8,000 UPS drivers are members of the Circle of Honor globally. In total, the drivers have more than 245,000 years and over 5.3 billion safe miles, enough to travel to Mars and back 19 times.
“My thanks go to all of them for their dedication and focus and for the countless lives they’ve saved,” said Tom Cuce, president, UPS South California District. “Their attention to detail has kept them safe and has helped improve public safety.”
