Phillip: No sir.

David: What made you want to become a truck driver?

Phillip: I’m tired of manual labor.

David: I hear that.

Phillip: Tired of running a shovel.

David: You want to do like over-the-road? Is that what you’re wanting to do?

David: Who all have you talked to if you don’t mind me asking?

Phillip: I’ve got a job offer in Altus, for Altus Sand and Gravel. I have another job offer for hauling cottonseed.

David: What made you want to come to our school?

Phillip: My uncle told me that I could get a Pell Grant for it. I didn’t know that I could get a Pell Grant through the unemployment office. So I went up there to the Oklahoma unemployment office.

David: Here in the city?

Phillip: In Altus, Oklahoma.

David: Oh, in Altus. From Atlus. You’re coming in from all the way from Altus? What kind of drive is that?

Phillip: 2.5 hours.

David: Wow, 2.5? I figured it was even longer. I knew a girl from Altus. You got a lot of Air Force people down there right?

Phillip: Yeah, we’ve got that big Air Force base. Altus Air Force Base.

David: Yeah, that’s right, okay. So what did you think of the school?

Phillip: I thought it was great. Everybody was patient. They teach what you need to know.

David: Who’d you work with the most? Bruce? Bruce and Cindy?

Phillip: Bruce and Cindy.

David: How’d they do? What do you think?

Phillip: They did great. As far as I’m concerned, they did great.

David: Would you want us to improve on anything? Anything you didn’t like?

Phillip: No, you all made the time for me to come back in on Saturday when I needed to. It was all good.

David: Gotcha. Any advice for anybody else that might be wanting to get their CDL, and go through the program?

Phillip: If you want to do it, if you want to go to school and do it, this is a good school to do it. They’re very patient. They teach you everything you need to know.

David: We appreciate it Phillip!
