Robert Short, a veteran, spent many years working as a warehouse supervisor, a machine operator, and even as a business owner. In December 2022, he went to the Arkansas Workforce Center in Conway to learn how the center could help him achieve his goal of finding a job that was a little less physically demanding.
After working with the One-Stop Manager, Robert was accepted into the WIOA Adult Program and enrolled in Rover Rock CDL Training in February 2023. After earning his CDL and graduating from River Rock, he received and accepted a full-time work offer from Mallard Ready Mix in April 2023.
In the end, Robert's upbeat outlook and persistent desire to improve his life for himself and his family helped him to succeed in achieving his goals, and now he is enjoying working in the Trade and Transportation industry.
