You might have caught us on the news again Friday, February 17, 2023. We have a student currently attending Pro-Fleet with a very exciting background story. Mujtaba Karimi was an assistant to the president of Afghanistan was helping our military when the Taliban retook control in August of 2021. His life was in great danger, but he was lucky enough to escape on the last US Military evacuation plane leaving the country. He spent some time in a refugee camp in Texas and then was moved to Omaha. He learned to speak English and is now working on getting his CDL at Pro-Fleet. He hopes to help other refugees find new productive lives here in American as well. You can watch different takes on this story from both local channels Fox42 News and Channel 3 NewsNow station.
So, pets are cute, but our hard working trucks and drivers deserve some recognition as well! They also sometimes get to witness some awesome scenery from those huge windows and long treks! Take a look at our 2023 Hard Working Trucks of Hill Bros Calendar! Available at the front desk in the East (Pro-Fleet) Building for a limited time.
