Cheyenne’s recent Commercial Driving training included four weeks behind the wheel learning to operate 70-foot, 40,000-pound semi-trucks. The moms drove in rain, snow, and ice to complete final testing and earn CDL licenses that will offer a wide range of career opportunities. They cheered each other on the entire time—one mom even got into the truck with another participant to encourage her through a difficult training maneuver. The moms gained confidence and are now filling critical transportation positions in our community’s workforce, with high-paying careers that will change their families’ lives.
