CFCC Diesel and Heavy Equipment Students Receive Support and Tools to Help Start Careers
The Down East Chapter of the North Carolina Transportation Council recently awarded tools and scholarship money to six Cape Fear Community College students in the diesel and heavy equipment technology program. The tools and monetary donations to these six students were valued at $2,500.
The “Tools for Tech” initiative supports students entering their chosen field by equipping them with scholarships, quality tools, and equipment donations needed to perform their jobs after graduation. CFCC students received donations from Triple T, MHC Kenworth, and Cal and Diane Geary. Mr. Geary was the former Lead instructor for the CFCC Diesel Program.
“We are very appreciative of the support from the NCTMC,” said Patrick Freeland, Heavy Equipment & Transport Technology program director. “Through these donations, our students are better prepared and equipped to tackle their chosen field after graduation.”
The mission of the NCTMC is to educate best maintenance practices and processes, promote new products and technologies and network with suppliers and peers throughout the industry.
