Joseph Godfrey

Skyline is happy to introduce Joseph Godfrey! Joey is one of our recent training graduates who is excited to head out in his own Skyline truck. Congratulations Joey and welcome to the team!

Before entering into the CDL Training Program, Joey worked his way up to General Manager at Dollar Tree in Knoxville, TN and then owned his own moving business. Joey wanted to be more hands on in his career and began contemplating a change. When considering new opportunities, he reverted back to a childhood love, Trucking. Joey said, “I was always that kid in the car motioning for the Truck Driver to honk his horn”.

After looking into a few different options for Driving Schools, he was referred to Skyline by former Skyline driver Ryan Ellison.

When asked about the Training Program, Joey said he really enjoyed the instruction style of Director of New Driver Training, Michael Garrabrant. He said that Michael went above and beyond in helping him develop his trucking knowledge / skills. Early in his Over the Road Training, Joey found himself in a scary situation in which he blew a steer tire. He said in that moment he recalled a conversation he had with Michael Garrabrant about what to do in that situation. He credits Mike for making it through that moment safely.

Joey was born and raised in Knoxville and is a huge Vols fan. He has been married for 18 years with 2 children ages 17 and 13. When asked about the best advice he’s received or favorite quote, Joey said, “Always remember everyone is human; everyone is my brother or sister through Christ.”

Congratulations Joey! Skyline is proud of you and excited to welcome you to the team!
