The New Year is here as we say goodbye to Y2K and all the hype that came with it. As we usher in new resolutions, goals, and plans, let’s take a minute to visit with NATIONAL TRUCK SCHOOL’S new GRADUATE OF THE MONTH Mr. Derrick Johnson. Derrick is from right here in Jacksonville, Florida. He is married to Nikki and they have a daughter named Breanna.

After completing his high school years, Derrick joined the US Navy to see the world. I guess traveling is in Derrick’s blood. After his time in the Navy, Derrick found himself in need of a career capable of providing for himself and his family. Knowing that traveling was a joy, Derrick sought out trucking.

Derrick chose National Truck School for several reasons. Our reputation as a quality school is long standing and helped sway Derrick to train with us. We are also approved by the Veteran’s Administration for helping out with the tuition. Derrick was aware that we have been providing excellence in truck driver training since 1978, and he could count on us to deliver what we promise.

We did deliver! Derrick was offered 15 jobs before completing his Resident Training. Even though Derrick struggled at first with backing up the big rigs, he mastered all the skills required to have the trucking companies falling over themselves to get him. Derrick chose to go with MELTON TRUCK LINES, Inc. for predictable reasons. With all the companies to choose from, Derrick went with a benefits package offered by Melton that is a cut above.  Regardless of whom Derrick drives for, his future and that of his family is secure, because he possesses a Class A Commercial Drivers License.

We asked Derrick why he chose trucking as a career field. He enthusiastically told us “Even though I drive for Melton, I am my own boss most of the time.” When we asked him if he would recommend trucking as a career change choice he again told us with great zeal “Yes! Try it out, don’t knock it ‘till you try it.” We wholeheartedly agree.

Derrick’s excitement is contagious. If you would like to know what Derrick has known for a while now, give us a call. We’ll show you!

Derrick has made us proud as well as the trucking industry as a whole. For that we are grateful and award Derrick the honor of:

Graduate of the Month for JANUARY 2001.
