Since 2015, Howes Products and SAGE Truck Driving Schools have been proud to offer the “Howes Truckers of Tomorrow $1,000 Scholarship Program.” The scholarship is funded by Howes and can be applied for at all SAGE Truck Driving Schools across the country. SAGE has 25 locations and provides high quality one-on-one CDL training of entry-level commercial truck drivers, and driver training to some of Americas Fortune 100 companies and fleets. The “Howes Truckers of Tomorrow $1,000 Scholarship” will be awarded to one student at each SAGE location throughout the year. Howes offers the scholarships annually, with two to three scholarships being awarded each month. In order to be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must meet all trucking industry qualifications and demonstrate a financial need.
“Howes has been part of the trucking community since 1920 and the scholarship program is a way for us to invest in the industry that has been so important to our livelihood,” said Rob Howes, President of Howes Products. Howes produces the most trusted additives in the industry, and never releases a product that isn’t 100% guaranteed. “We put out the best products on the market,” continues Rob. “And now we’re excited to help get the best drivers on the road as well.”
“SAGE is thrilled that Howes chose to support our students with this Scholarship Program,” said Chris Thropp, Vice President at SAGE. “Howes has a recognized, high quality brand of additives in the trucking industry, but they don’t stop there. This scholarship program perfectly demonstrates how companies can play an important role in promoting the industry and the people in it.”
In honor of the company’s 100th Anniversary, Howes is awarding an extra scholarship each month through the end of the year. The scholarship can be applied to any SAGE Truck Driving School location. “It’s just one of the ways we are showing our appreciation for the industry, the people in it, and those who would like to become a part of it,” explains Robert Howes II, Executive Vice President. “We’ve been in this business for a full century now and everyone knows things are constantly changing. But for us, one thing has always stayed the same; giving back never gets old.”
