In partnership with OMCAP, INC., Coastal Truck Driving School accepted scholarships for new over-the-road truck drivers. Each awarded scholarship provided training and jobs placement. Coastal’s scholarships were paid only if the trainee graduated and assured that each scholarship resulted in a new driver. To date, more than 80 residents applied for scholarships; 55 were selected and 50 graduated with job offers. Of the 50 graduates, 44 are currently employed with carriers at a minimum salary of $30,000 per year. This $250,000 investment represents a potential return of $1,320,000 (528% increase) in salaries, alone.
COASTAL TRUCK DRIVING SCHOOL is a proprietary, co-educational institution, which was established in Louisiana in 1985 and is one of the premier truck driving schools in the country.
