Jarrod had worked as a Correctional Officer, but had always wanted to be a Truck Driver. Unemployed and in need of training to enter the workforce, he came into the AJC Camden requesting WIOA assistance. 

Roadrunner Driving School Office Manager Victoria states, "Truck drivers make sure that millions of people have food, gas, clothing, and other essential everyday supplies.  In short, truck drivers keep American moving."  

Jarrod was enthusiastic and eager to learn and caught on quickly mastering the backing and driving techniques needed to pass his final skills/driving test. He is now employed in the field of his training as a Truck Driver with DOT Foods, Dyersburg, TN, beginning in January 2022.  Alicia, Human Resource, DOT Foods stated that they are impressed with Jarrod and excited to have him on their team.
