What our applicants are saying: 

"My brother drives a logging truck and makes a lot of money so why can't I?  I have three daughters who I need to show that any girl can do anything that anyone else can. Everyone can make a career in trucking."  

"For the past ten years, I have been in the logistics industry, working with all types of freight carriers.  In my current position working at a manufacturing company, I am responsible for not only managing our inbound shipments of raw materials but also our outbound shipments of finished goods.  I feel that this program will give me a better understanding of the entire logistical process from start to finish."

"To rise up, one must have a plan and do what it takes to make their dream into a reality.  I am beyond excited to begin my new adventure of getting my CDL. I've always loved trucks my whole life, they are a huge part of our world. I know how few women are in this field and I'd like to change that."
