Donald attended Mt. Zion Elementary School and graduated from Southside High (formerly Greenville Training School) in 1970. At an early age, he attended and was added to the Oglesby Street Church of Christ.

After High School Donald moved to Detriot, Mich., where he worked at the Ford Motor Company as an Inspector for many years. He later attended truck-driving school where he received his CDL. He worked as an independent truck driver for several years before deciding that trucking companies

provided more benefits and stability. He worked for JB Hunt Trucking Company for many years before moving on to Wiley Sanders Trucking Company.
