Jeremy, It is a pleasure to read the entire process of going through your training. All the ups and downs were very reward reading but most of all your integrity and commitment show your true personality and purpose as a great man and future asset to the trucking profession. Your attitude towards gaining the final reward of completing the course and earning your CDL is a tribute to you. Even when you "failed" on the first try you kept on trying until you successfully completed the task you were attempting. You have learned very valuable lessons and are a great asset to the trucking world. It is a pleasure to meet someone of your character. Good luck in your trucking future.

CONGRATULATIONS!!

First off, congratulations ! I'm happy to hear that you finally had that "ah haa" moment that we all have after struggling. When I took my backing test, I still wasn't even sure I was going to pass my 90 degree alley dock. It just "happened."

Secondly, thank you for showing everyone what it means to put in the hard work and reap the awards. I guess some people forget, or don't understand, that the whole process, from bus ride to getting your own truck is a huge job interview. I have no doubt that if you were one of the people who sat in the corner, " coking and joking", that you would have found yourself with a return bus ticket.

Congratulations, and thank you for sharing your story thus far. Stay the course and keep up with the hard work.

You’re in good company Jeremy! Many of us struggled & failed many times before obtaining the prize. The difference is & will always be, perseverance! Along with seeking help & guidance.

I like how you put yourself in the right place with the right attitude & the universe responded by putting those people in your life. Maybe one day that will be us doing the same for someone else. Enjoy this victory & may you accomplish many more throughout the coming struggles. God bless, good luck & be safe, trucker!!
