Iowa truckload carrier donates truck, trailer to college CDL program

Updated Sep 6, 2022

Don Hummer Trucking, a dry van and temperature-controlled truckload carrier in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, recently donated a 2019 Kenworth T680 truck and trailer to Hawkeye Community College for use in its Class A commercial driver's license training program. 

“We understand that it is critical to support entry-level training, including donating equipment to schools like Hawkeye Community College to allow them to train more students,” said Chris Hummer, president of Don Hummer Trucking.

“The demand for drivers remains incredibly high,” Hummer said. "There is plenty of freight for customers. The only limiting factor to any company’s growth is drivers. Supporting trucking schools like Hawkeye Community College helps to add educated professional drivers to the workforce. The need for truck drivers will not be diminishing anytime soon, making it a rewarding and stable career choice for many.”

Hawkeye’s Class A CDL program has a new class starting every six weeks.
