On Thursday, November 13th our 29 Palms location got a very special visit from Schneider’s Ride of Pride, a truck series designed to be a rolling tribute to members of the United States military, both past and present. The Ride of Pride program started in 2001. Freightliner manufacturing creates one military-themed truck every year and awards it to a trucking company. Schneider has been the recipient a remarkable seven times. Every truck is proudly driven by a US military veteran all over the nation including the annual Ride for Freedom, a procession through Washington, D.C. every Memorial Day.
Our students got to learn about Schneider’s employment opportunities first-hand and meet the Ride of Pride 2014 driver, Randy Twine. Randy gave students an inside look at life over-the-road and answered questions about driving for Schneider. The students were really excited to see such a unique truck that was geared to appreciate all the sacrifices our branches of military make. CCS would like to thank Randy, Schneider and Aaron Robinson, our Schneider recruiter, for arranging such an exclusive experience for our students. Hopefully California Career School will be a stop again next year for the 2015 Ride of Pride!
