The Door County Highway Department recently donated a Peterbilt Model 378 semi-tractor to Northeast Wisconsin Technical College that the school says will advance diesel training in Northeastern Wisconsin, the Green Bay Press Gazette reported.

The truck will be used in NWTC’s Diesel Equipment Technician and Diesel Equipment Technology programs.

“The key to the success of our Diesel Equipment programs is offering our students a chance to work on modern equipment,” said Joe Draves, NWTC associate dean of trades and engineering technologies told the newspaper.

“We are giving back because many of our employees have gained valuable training and education from the NWTC program,” John Kolodziej, Door County Highway Commissioner added.

NWTC offers both a two-year technical diploma and a two-yearassociate degree in diesel equipment.
