Advantage Truck Group donated a 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine, transmissions and air brake boards to the Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School in Upton, Mass. 

"This equipment will make ideal training aids for students in our diesel classes," says instructor Michael Godowski. "Disassembling the transmissions and engine will help students identify parts and see how everything works, and the air brake boards will serve as both training aids and testing tools for the students to better understand the different functions of the system." 

ATG also provides cooperative education and internship opportunities for students, giving them industry experience at its Shrewsbury facility and other locations in New England. 

"It is critical to support education and training of diesel technicians at every level, and donating equipment to schools like Blackstone Valley Tech helps expand learning experiences for students interested in this career," says ATG network trainer Matthew McCuin.
