National Tractor Trailer School is proudly pleased to announce that one of our students, Darcy Crofts, is the recipient of a scholarship from the Women in Trucking Foundation. Darcy is attending school now and training to become a professional tractor trailer driver. The scholarship will help cover the cost of tuition as Darcy gets her trucking career off to a great start!
Darcy, who had been working as a bus school driver, came to NTTS because she wanted to upgrade her skills and obtain her CDL-A to be a tractor trailer driver. She mentioned that becoming a Class A truck driver will allow her to have more income to take care of her family. She knows that with more income, she will have less worry about financial stress. Darcy shared that she has overcome adversity before in her life, and faced it head on. She is doing this for her family and wants to make sure they have a good life.
When asked about her five-year plan, Darcy said she wanted to be with a company that knows her by name and not by a number. She wants to make her company proud and strives to be the best driver possible for whoever it may be. She is excited for the future and the opportunities it will bring her and her family!
The Women in Trucking Foundation is an organization that supports ambitious students, drivers, and professionals in the trucking industry who seek to grow their skills through classroom and vocational training. The Foundation is supported by the Women In Trucking Association (WIT) who’s mission is “to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the industry.” WIT offers more than scholarships, including many resources for women and anyone looking to get involved.
The entire Staff at NTTS, and especially Training Director Donald Frazer, is proud of Darcy’s accomplishments. We are honored to be helping her reach her goals.
