We were pleased to accept the donation of a 1999 Freightliner FLD120 Road Tractor for use in the Diesel Program at Bridging Communities. Corporate Technical/Training Manager, Loraine Taylor of Carter Machinery handed the keys over to Bridging Communities Regional CTE Foundation - Vice President, Rodney Hathaway.

The students will gain hands-on experience as they perform various service and repair tasks on the vehicle. Learning all of the subsystems and how they work together.

Our staff and students are excited to have this new learning tool for our diesel program. Students will be able to see the workings of an entire vehicle and how all the "stations" they have been utilizing work together.
