A first of its kind program launched last year at Clinton High School and it returns again this year.
Clinton High School offered seniors a chance to go through a course to get their CDL and Superintendent of Clinton Schools, Curt Nettles, says they are readying for the second group of students to embark on that again this year.
One thing the district has sought is a volunteer from the community to allow the youth the opportunity to drive with someone's rig. Nettles says it would be good for the youth get some behind the wheel experience with a veteran driver.
According to Nettles, there is a big need for CDL drivers in central Illinois and he says this is something a lot of people who try to get their CDL do not have access to.
The class meets on Saturday's and it's about an eight-week course.
