SC's Competitive EDGE: Distribution and Logistics

Milliken Helps SCC Start New CDL Program

Thanks to a generous donation from Milliken & Company, Spartanburg Community College (SCC) began a new truck driver training program in November 2017 for a profession that offers both competitive wages and job security. Milliken donated a 53-foot trailer to SCC that will be used to train students enrolled in the College’s new commercial driver’s license (CDL) or truck driver training program.

J. Harold Chandler, CEO, president and chairman of the board of Milliken & Company, presented SCC president Henry C. Giles with the trailer at the college’s central campus in Spartanburg.

“Improved access to technical education and the career opportunities generated by that education can enhance the lives and well-being of our neighbors,” shared Chandler. “Milliken is pleased to contribute to Spartanburg Community College’s new commercial driver’s license program and provide important support for our community’s future.”

President Giles expressed his appreciation. “We are so appreciative to Milliken for their trailer donation for our new CDL program,” said Giles. “This will not only help us get this program up and running, but it will help us immediately produce trained and qualified graduates who can in turn join the trucking industry, one that literally keeps our state and nation moving by transporting goods all across the country.”
