KSI Drivers Make a Difference with Advanced Certification

Recently, eight members of KSI’s Transportation Services team took a major step to help the organization fulfill its mission more effectively. KSI invested $1,000 per driver to go through federally compliant CDL driver training to help expand the organization’s transport capabilities for participants accessing the numerous opportunities available for their growth. The training also helped increase drivers’ skills and awareness to better perform their duty to safely transport individuals under KSI’s care.


A number of KSI’s drivers already had their CDL certification to safely use large capacity and lift busses. But this spring, eight additional members of the transportation team were able to complete their CDL certification, including Director of Transportation Ron Harris and Transportation Manager Sherry Schenk, as well as drivers Keisha Emory-Duncan, Rod Fessler, Craig Fry, Marlon Hunt, Chris Klapproth and Versia White.


KSI is a not for profit agency, providing vocational training, employment, community integration, transportation, day habilitation, life enrichment and nutritional services to individuals with disabilities throughout Kent and Sussex Counties. KSI is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of its transportation services based on race, color, or national origin, as protected by Title VI in the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Circular 4702.1B.
