Diesel Students Enjoy Loan of Semi-Truck

Thanks to the generosity of Jim Mallare of Hunter Peterbilt, the Diesel Technology class of Wes Blidy spent a day with a brand-new 2020 Peterbilt 389 semi-truck. 


The truck was lent to the class for the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center’s open house for them to put on display.  “My students got to spend a day learning about all the neat features the semi-truck has to offer,” says teacher Wes Blidy.  “All the students had a chance to sit in the truck and we talked about the jobs associated with this vehicle such as a truck driver and technician for the engine and transmission and manpower perform basic maintenance from changing oil to changing tires.
