Oct 12, 2011

Students enrolled in EMCC’s Diesel, Truck and Heavy Equipment will benefit from a recent donation to The Foundation for Maine’s Community Colleges by Dead River Company.  Over the next few years, Dead River is donating 11 diesel trucks worth more than $100,000.  EMCC recently received one of the first trucks to be donated and joined business leaders in celebrating the donation.

“We proudly support Maine’s high-quality education opportunities in the community college system,” states Dead River President Robert Moore. 

“These vehicles will provide our students with hands-on technical work experience in the engineering, testing, servicing, troubleshooting and repairing of trucks and diesel engines – skills that are required to meet the current and futur eneeds of Maine’s trucking industry,” EMCC President Lawrence Barrett said.
