CHEYENNE, WYO. — September 12-18 is National Truck Driving Appreciation Week.  LCCC’s Commercial Drivers’ License (CDL) program has a series of events planned to spotlight truck driving and the efforts of the men and women in the industry, particularly during the pandemic. 

Mike Geissler, CDL coordinator states, “Our goal is to show appreciation to the 3.5 million truck drivers who deliver our everyday goods while keeping the supply chain moving, as well as the local industry that has supported us through the launch of our program.”

Events include opportunities to view LCCC’s truck driving simulator and learn about training opportunities available at the college; a question-and-answer session with WYDOT officials about upcoming Entry Level Driver Training requirements; two networking events with our industry partners; and free Truckers Against Trafficking training. Workshops and trainings are available to the public, register at lccc.wy.edu/cdl.

The official kickoff for Truck Driver Appreciation Week, will begin on Tuesday with proclamations from both the City of Cheyenne and Laramie County Commission.
