    • We do need truck drivers for the upcoming fall season.  We need drivers for 20-22’ box trucks and the truck that pulls the 32’ Marching Redhawks trailer.  3-4 drivers are needed for each competition this season.  A CDL is not needed but D203 must approve all drivers.  Please contact Mrs P  (vpadmanabhan@naperville203.org) if interested in being an approved driver.  She will need a copy of your valid driver’s license to begin the process.  You can email her with the copy of your driver’s license if interested.   Thanks to all for considering.
