48 - CAPE GAZETI, Friday, October 2 - October 8, 1998 Kerry Kester photo Cape students earn top JROTC honors Julie Jackson and Daniel Prettyman were honored at the Cape Henlopen School District Board of Education meeting, Sept. 24, for earning Loyal Legion of Valor Bronze Crosses achievement awards for their contributions to Cape High's JROTC program. "It's an ex- tremely rare award in the JROTC program in the United States," said Col. Ron Eraie, Cape's commander, noting there is one bronze cross awarded for every 1,000 students enrolled in JROTC nationwide. "The fact that we received two is highly unusual, but it's not unusual when you see the students before you." For example, Jackson was the honor graduate and highest-ranking cadet for the graduate parade at Fort Indiantown Gap summer camp in 1998. Shown are (l-r) Erale, Superintendent Suellen Skeen, Jackson and Prettyman. Del Tech Job Fair slated Oct. 17 More than 75 local and national trucking companies have been in- vited to participate in the first CDL Driver Job FoJr, to be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 17, at Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens cam- pus. The fair will be held in the Trades & Industry Building. "This is a great chance not only for our students, but also for any- one who already holds a commer- cial driver's license (CDL), to see what kinds of job opportunities are available both locally and na- tionally," said Chris Antonik, an instructor with the tractor-trailer driver training program at Delaware Tech. "People who might be interested in a career as a tractor-trailer driver can attend to find out more about what kind of "training we offer and where it can take them." For the trucking companies, noted Antonik, it's a great oppor- tunity to recruit new drivers who have the necessary skill to begin a trucking career. "There's a nation- al shortage of tractor-trailer dri- vers," he said. "National carriers were sending recruiters here to talk to a class of dozen students, and our graduates had jobs wait- ing for them as soon as they fin- ished their training. This year, we had so many companies asking to make recruitment presentations that we decided to hold the job fair to avoid compromising in- structional time. It will also give the students a chance to do a little comparison shopping among em- ployers." Delaware Tech's driver training program includes both classroom instruction and practical experi- ence behind the wheel of a diesel- powered tractor-trailer unit. Stu- dents receive approximately 400 miles of actual driving experience in light, medium and high-density traffic and use the college's pri- vate training "range" to practice maneuvering, parking and other skills. Class sizes are small to encour- age individual attention; the typi- cal instructor-to-student ratio is less than 5-to-1. Two eight-week courses are held each semester. To accommodate students who might already be employed but are look- ing for a new career option, the program also offers one 16-week course of weekend classes. "I think both current students and recent graduates, will benefit from attending this job fair," An- tonik said. "The participating companies will be recruiting and may conduct interviews on the spot and make conditional job of- fers.
