Dec. 30, 2015

Maryland-based East Insurance Group recently celebrated its relationship with the local community by announcing a scholarship program for people entering the truck driving field.  The company will be providing $250 scholarships to students who qualify and are seeking a CDL to become professional truck drivers.

Applying is simple, an applicant simply has to write to company and tell in detail why they want to become a truck driver and how this will help their lives.

“We're always looking at ways we can give back,” said David Meltzer, owner of East Insurance Group. “Our economy runs on trucks and becoming a truck driver is a way a person can quickly improve their lives in many ways. We're happy to help make this kind of dream come true.”

Applicants can submit their essay on what pushed them to pursue a career in the trucking industry starting January 1, 2016 up until February 29, 2016. The winners will be announced March 31.
