Ed and Glenn spent their two-year tenure attending a number of events and sharing with people what it means to be a commercial driver, and how a career in industry can provide a variety of opportunities.
My tenure as a Road Knight was a most enjoyable two-year phase of my 50 year career as a professional driver because it allowed me to meet some very wonderful young people. I now know our future is in good hands. I hope I’ve made an impact and provided them with a career path into the trucking industry. – Ed Stasyshyn
I have thoroughly enjoyed attending various functions from high school round tables to job fairs. It was interesting meeting with people from all walks of life, many with a wide range of work skills. I very often engaged in conversations concerning the trucking industry and all it had to offer. I also took my talents as an AMTA Road Knight and as an In-Cab Instructor to the [Professional Truck Driving Championship] in Edmonton, and also the [Truck Convoy for Special Olympics] where I was always able to converse with other drivers and people in the trucking industry. My tenure as a Road Knight has been very rewarding and also educational and I would highly recommend that everyone give it a shot if they were able to. – Glenn McNeilly
