CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Having the desire to take on a nontraditional workforce, Justin Smith became the first woman to graduate from Laramie County Community College’s new commercial driver’s license program this summer.
She began her journey with the hope of finding a self-sustaining job that would allow her to spend more time with her two daughters, and find work-life balance. Before she even attended LCCC for the training, she had a job lined up with a local wheat company due to the efforts of Climb Wyoming.
Now, she has her own semi truck and runs a business, the Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported.
