He worked his way through college and obtained a position in sales at the same company for which he worked for since the age of 16. When he left this company to start his own in 1988 he was vice president of sales. Today, 20 years after Road Scholar hauled its first piece freight, Jim and Debra employ approximately 95 drivers out of 4 different terminals, own 95 tractors, 350 trailers and additionally employ 10 owner operators.
