A new partnership was announced on Tuesday, September 15 at Jackie Browning Park that would help generate opportunities for people to obtain their CDL license.
Barren County is the third County that Workforce Solutions has partnered with. This venture was made possible by conversations with Judge Executive Michael Hale over the course of the last year, and he was cited as a driving force in getting the program moved into Barren County.
“We’re not done,” Hale said. “This is just the start of things that we’re discussing right now.”
Everything touches a truck was the common theme. It was mentioned several times that the importance of this program comes from the need of CDL drivers. To further place emphasis on the importance of the program, they also noted that there are even chances to obtain funding for those that are eligible.
Dr. Kim Meyers, a Director of Workforce Solutions, spoke briefly and said she was thrilled to see so much support for the program as several member of the community were present for the ribbon cutting announcement. She encouraged those with interest in the program or those seeking information for other to reach out to them.
