Carl Tapp Scholarship Fund

Arkansas Trucking Association is excited about an opportunity to encourage growth in the diesel technician workforce, as well as a way to help assure that the safest, most knowledgeable and skilled technicians are working on the trucks and trailers on our roads.

In addition to the driver shortage, the industry is also wanting for more manpower under the hoods and over the motherboards of increasingly technological trucks. The Arkansas Trucking Association is pursuing partnerships with institutes with diesel technician certificate programs to make technician careers and training accessible to more Arkansas students.

We would like to introduce a Technician Scholarship Program that supports aspiring techs in their education and certification pursuits at Arkansas institutions that produce workforce-prepared diesel technicians.

There are many ways to help us take a positive step toward reversing the shortage of technicians in the Arkansas trucking industry.

Please let me know if you would be interested in joining us in this effort. For more information or if you have questions, please email me at sarahsheets@arkansastrucking.com or call 501.372.3462.
