Bruce Johnston Memorial Scholarship

The International Milk Haulers Association has an Educational Scholarship Award Program. This program was started after the passing of IMHA and Michigan Milk Transporters Association long-time board member and friend, Bruce Johnston. After his passing, the board directors of IMHA wanted to begin a program to assist with higher education costs for those who have a desire to obtain a degree and have been in the milk hauling industry, in Bruce's honor. Golfing was one of Bruce's favorite pastimes and so the board of directors felt it appropriate to allocate proceeds from the outing to the Scholarship fund. Member's children are encouraged to apply.

Our Mission


 WHEREAS, members of several regional, bi-state and local milk haulers and state associations, from time to time, meet to discuss common problems and to exchange ideas, all for the purpose of furthering the interests of the milk hauling industry; and

 WHEREAS, it has been determined that it would be in the best interests of all milk haulers to form an incorporated, non-stock, non-profit and federally tax-exempt association of milk haulers and state milk hauler associations to further promote these interests;

 Therefore, the various milk haulers and state milk hauler associations,  do so form an international association.
