Four Family Members Learn to Drive in a T680

After relocating to Elko, Nevada, four members of the Sasse family — mother Cassandra and three of her seven children: Kendall, Katelynn and Kodi — each applied for and received full scholarships to attend Great Basin College’s six-week CDL program. They learned to drive under the guidance of Kenneth Pope, Great Basin College’s CDL program instructor. During the time they were enrolled in the CDL program, Great Basin College added a new Kenworth T680. After first learning how to operate the college’s previous Class 8 truck, Cassandra, Katelynn and Kendall Sasse, were the first students to drive the T680. “There’s no doubt the T680 is a better driving truck,” says Cassandra Sasse. “The T680 is much easier to shift, and the suspension makes for a very comfortable ride.” Pope, who has more than 22 years of driving and teaching experience, was a big advocator for the program’s administration to add the T680. “In my time on the road, a Kenworth was my favorite truck to drive,” says Pope. “Kenworth sets the bar high for the trucks they produce.”
