(Continued)

Not only is Woodard a leader in the industry, but he also has held leadership roles in numerous community organizations including the Ottumwa Chamber of Commerce, Ottumwa Regional Health Center, the Ottumwa Economic Development Corporation, Ottumwa Country Club, Ottumwa Youth Football League, Ottumwa Babe Ruth, Ottumwa “A” Club, Wapello County Ducks Unlimited and founder and board chairman of Amoco (BP) Jobbers Children’s Miracle Network. His company has been an athletic program sponsor, an Indian Hills Community College scholarship provider and has been a proud sponsor of the University of Iowa’s Children’s Hospital.

Woodard, son-in-law to the founder, James Elliott, joined the company in 1984 and has continued to grow the enterprise. Under his leadership, the company started its own transport business and founded Elliott Bulk Services, LLC, which includes a bulk plant and warehouse. When Amoco merged with BP in 1998, another transition took place, and now the stores operate under the BP brand. Elliott Oil continues to grow and has franchise operations with McDonald’s, Arby’s and Godfather’s Pizza. They employ more than 200 people.

The award was presented during the annual meeting at the Kansas City Marriott on Feb. 28.
