|Trucker Buddy's Randy Schwartzenburg|
Trucking Mentors is a program that's brand new at Trucker Buddy and long overdue to my way of thinking. It's directed at educating high school students on how to drive safely around commercial trucks. And let's face it, our teens need this in the worst way. Drivers signed up for this program visit their Trucker Buddy high school every 6-12 months to help young motorists learn about sharing the road with big trucks.
I talked to TBI Executive Director Randy Schwartzenburg on Thursday in the West Wing at MATS. He told me about the new program and asked me to spread the word. I could NOT be happier to do this. It's a no-brainer how much our teens who are out there just learning to drive can benefit from this program. It's one that can not only improve the image of truckers with our kids, but also save lives.
