Tyrone Tobias was awarded the first Servant Leadership award of 2017 for his outstanding work with military veteran recruiting. Tyrone joined the 7-Eleven team in 1989 as a Recruiting Specialist. A veteran himself, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel from the Army Reserves, Tyrone became a self-appointed champion for military recruiting for 7-Eleven. In 2014 he was recognized for his efforts and was formally given the responsibility of being our resident Military Recruiter. Thank you Tyrone!
