Firsts in the CDL Training Program

Spencer Rouse is an inspiration. As a Butler Tech student in the Landscape Design & Construction program, taught by instructor Mark Anderson, he had a dream and did not hesitate to take steps towards making it happen. Coming from a family of college graduates, his aspirations were not the family norm. His dream is to one day own his own excavating business. With the support of Monroe Campus Principal, David Helms, and Butler Tech Public Safety Director, Jeff Travers, Rouse enrolled in Butler Tech’s Adult Education 5-week CDL program, making him the first Butler Tech high school student to earn a CDL A license. “All the instructors were really nice and it was a good feeling to be part of a new experience,” he shared. He plans to attend the Warren County Career Center Heavy Equipment Operator program after graduation; taking another step toward his dream!

CDL high school studentThe Butler Tech Adult Education CDL program has also specifically designed a drivers training program to meet the needs of the Lane Libraries. The training is to help the drivers of the Lane Libraries Bookmobile learn maneuvering and safety protocols when taking the vehicle on the road. What a great way to help the community!
