One of a Kind Spotlight on Suzanne Rojo
When she’s not driving an 18-wheeler, she’s singing the national anthem before sports games.
Aug 4, 2017

When Suzanne was young, she loved singing and participated in all the school musicals she could, dreaming of the day she could sing the national anthem before a baseball game.

This year, her dream came true when she sang the national anthem on July 4 for the Texas AirHogs baseball team in Grand Prairie, Texas. For DPS, Suzanne sings the national anthem for the southern central regions Truck rodeo each year and at the Texoma golf tournament.

“My favorite part about singing is making someone feel something,” she says. “If you got goose bumps or you caught yourself smiling without realizing it, I feel like I accomplished something.”

Singing isn’t her only passion; Suzanne loves trucks and always told her father that one day, she’d drive a truck so big that she’d have to climb a ladder to get into it.

Today she’s celebrating 10 years with DPS and is driving tankers and transport trucks across North Texas. When asked why she loves driving trucks so much, she’ll mention that she always liked the challenge of doing something that people don’t expect.

“I love being a truck driver and knowing I have the ability to control a rig with a 53-foot to 57-foot trailer behind me through some of the trickiest places, and then seeing the look on people’s faces when they realize a girl just did that!”
