Main Street Siloam Springs

In Arkansas, trucking is a big deal. The industry supports one of every ten people working in the state and will soon support the education of 77 high school graduates in pursuit of careers in trucking technology.

  • The next generation: The Arkansas Trucking Association and Simmons Food Inc. are giving a combined $167,500 in scholarships to students pursuing education "in medium- and heavy-duty trucking technology." More than half of the recipients are from NWA.
  • Driving success: In addition, Simmons, a family-owned business based in Siloam Springs, has given $1.3mm to almost 1,200 students through grants since the scholarship program began.
