From Rebecca Croomes’ article on The News Currier website:
Limestone County Career Technical Center’s new diesel engine repair program received a boost this week from Ryder, a national chain of commercial transportation systems.
SkillsUSA, a national tech school honor society, teamed up with the Ryder Charitable Foundation to award $5,000 to help instructor John Dunn enhance his classroom. The grant will be beneficial to the students of the year-old program.
“At this moment, I share a shop with automotive technology,” Dunn said. “I have some tools that were passed down from the small engines program and we share tools with auto tech. The Limestone County Career Technical School wants to thank Ryder for their generous grant …”
With the money, Dunn said he was able to purchase an interface system professionals use to digitally diagnose problems with medium and heavy-duty trucks. He also purchased the latest textbooks and and learning materials. With these tools, students can be familiar with professional-level tools before entering the workforce.
