ROCKVILLE, Ind. (WTWO) — A local high school is excited to show the community its newly-wrapped and decaled semi truck for its CDL (commercial driver’s license) program.
Parke Heritage High School said the truck is now designed with the school colors and logo, thanks entirely to donations.
The truck was donated by Crum Trucking in Batesville, and the trailer was donated by FedEx in Indianapolis. TKO Graphix did the wrapping on the trailer and the Indiana Motor Truck Association covered the cost.
It’s an exciting milestone for the CDL class, which has its graduates on the road to success.
“We’ve had four more graduates, and they’re all out there getting jobs and in the workforce now, so we’re really proud of them and they did a great job. They put a lot of work into this, and now they’re benefitting from it,” said Kelly Rollings, a CDL instructor at Parke Heritage High School.
The program gives students both classroom instruction and behind-the-wheel training with the goal of obtaining their CDL.
The community can support the CDL class by visiting a fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 23. The event, which will feature a truck show, will take place at Kirby Foods in Rockville from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
