  • As a former student of the motive power technician program I applaude Hino for this donation and hope the students and faculty make the best use of it.When I attended the school we had the benefit of major manufacturers donating equipment and vehicles for our benefit. There is no better way to introduce the newest technologies to the technichians than hands on. Benevolent benefactors like Hino keep our youth current and on the leading edge. Class of 87.
