Success Stories: Marlo finds a job she loves after CDL training

June 23, 2023

In the fall of 2022, my husband, a 13-year veteran truck driver, became ill while on the road and spent a month at home recovering from emergency surgery. Our bills began to stack up. Our mortgage was due. I knew that I needed to come out of retirement and rejoin the workforce. Unfortunately, I had been retired long enough from my career as a network administrator, that I was missing some of the knowledge in that particular industry. Luckily for me, I also had prior experience as a truck driver. I knew that if I could obtain my CDL then I would have a much easier time reentering the job market, with the added bonus of being able to work with my husband once he had recovered.

During my research of CDL schools, I was directed to the Kentucky Career Center-Lincoln Trail office in Elizabethtown. My advisor, Molly, patiently sat with me and listened to my situation. Shortly after qualifying for the needed assistance for the CDL training, I was enrolled at a local school where I received my CDL.

Because of the Kentucky Career Center-Lincoln Trail, I now have a job I truly enjoy with amazing benefits, exceptional pay, and the ability to sustain as well as improve our lives! I would like to thank KCC-LT for believing in me and for their help and kindness. I sincerely encourage anyone wanting and needing help in their lives to visit them for their assistance. Your life could change for the better, too!
