Veteran Recieves Training to Start New Truckdriving Career

William ‘Shawn’ Clark came into the American Job Center in Humboldt at the end of June 2021. An unemployed veteran, he was eager to go to school to earn his CDL.

Shawn stated he had gone through many obstacles in life and was ready to make a change to make a better life for himself and his wife.


Career Advisor, Olivia Capps determined Shawn eligible for services and enrolled him with WIOA to assist with the cost of attending school to earn his CDL. Shawn attended Roadrunner Driving School in Sharon, TN starting in mid-July 2021 and completed training at the beginning of August. Soon after finishing training and earning his CDL, he secured a job with Doyle Sims & Sons Trucking, Inc. Shawn has been employed with Doyle Sims & Sons Trucking since September 2021 and enjoys traveling the country for work with his wife by his side.
