Job Corps honors Commercial Driver’s License instructors

CARIBOU, Maine — Loring Job Corps recently held its annual awards ceremony to honor the center staff’s many achievements and milestones throughout the past year.

This year the center was honored to be ranked as number three in the entire country, and also celebrated its commercial driving instructors earning an “A” course rating for the past 10 years. 

The commercial driver’s license program on Loring continues to produce results well over the national standards, and their students continue to gain successful employment driving all over the country.  

Center Director Kristie Moir presented awards to CDL instructors Tracy Nichols, Patrick Burns and program lead Michael Espling.

“Our instructors are very proud of this program, which you can clearly see in every student they have had the opportunity to train for success,” Moir said at the ceremony. “Because of this success, the Loring CDL program has grown from two instructors to three, and we can see only even more records being broken by this dedicated team.”

Moir indicated that with greater numbers of drivers needed in the trucking industry every day, the center’s CDL program is helping to fill that need.

“These great instructors have continued to meet the challenge head on by providing highly skilled drivers to meet the needs of any employer,” Moir said.
