National Truck Drivers School would like you to meet an interesting and dynamic graduate. The gentleman pictured here earned his Class A CDL from National in April of 2000. What makes Michael McGann so interesting is his social skills. Mike has the uncanny ability to get along with and motivate most people he meets. Mike orchestrated the only graduation in the history of National Training that involved cap and gowns. His leadership and camaraderie with his classmates convinced them to march down the isle in full graduation regalia to receive their certificate and CDL license.

Mike is interesting for other reasons as well. It takes courage at age 55 to change careers. After retiring from the Navy, Mike tried his hand working for Peterbilt and Great Southern in the body shop. Pounding out dings and straightening frames is not what Mike wanted to do with the big rigs. Besides that he was seeking to improve his financial situation. He knew being a truck driver would do just that. Taking a risk, Mike enrolled with National Truck Drivers School to become a trucker.

Mike struggled a bit with shifting the Fuller Road Ranger nine-speed transmission. But, with perseverance and expert tutelage, Mike made it through with flying colors. One might say he was the valedictorian of the gears. When we asked Mike why he chose National, enjoyed his reply. Mike iterated “National is the Harvard of Truck Driving Schools.” We agree. If there are Ivy League truck driving schools, it’s nice to know we’re one of them.

Following Mike’s graduation and after we convinced him to take off the mortarboard and gown, he accepted a position with Doss Aviation. Mike had 5 job offers before he graduated and decided on Doss. “Doss is local, pays well, and I have great hours,” he said. Mike delivers jet fuel to thirsty aircraft at the Naval Air Station Jacksonville. The fastest Mike ever drives is fifteen miles per hour. This would explain a lot. This is the perfect job for someone who doesn’t like to shift. Safety is a prime concern when conveying fuel to aircraft, and second gear is pretty safe.

When Mike is not running up and down the runways you can find him running up and down the dance floor. Mike is married to Shelly and the two of them enjoy Beach-Bop dancing. In fact, they are quite good at it. They travel a couple times a year to dancing extravaganzas throughout the country. Mike and Shelly have recently started taking Cha-Cha lessons too. Mike tells us “Come on down to Ronnie’s Wings in Orange Park every Sunday night for some Cha-Cha, Beach-Bop, and good friends.

We are beholden to Mike for representing his alma mater with pride and distinction. We wish Mike and Shelly much happiness. We thank Mike for the strong endorsement for National, and we want to say you are…
