On December 11th, a representative from the Midwest Truck Driving School visited Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG) students at the Jack Reque Alternative High School in Manistique. The representative provided the students with information related to how to become a Truck Driver, and what someone’s life would be like working as a Truck Driver.
The Midwest Truck Driving School, located in Escanaba, MI, helps aspiring Truck Drivers achieve their career goals by providing them with intensive classroom and hands-on training. After training with Midwest, successful students have the capability to earn their Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), a certification that makes them an asset to companies seeking qualified employees.
Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates is a program whose goal is to reduce dropout rates with at-risk students. Tours, presentations, and education are used to meet that goal.
