HAVERHILL — Superintendent Maureen Lynch is pleased to announce Whittier Tech has been gifted a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado for the use and benefit of its automotive technology program.
The donation, a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Duramax Diesel, is one of six similar donations being made by MassBay Community College’s Automotive Technology program in support of local technical high school programs. The trucks being donated all have original sticker prices of over $45,000 each, low mileage, and were part of the General Motors Captured Test Fleet.
Whittier Tech received the donation on Friday, Nov. 13.
“We are grateful and would like sincerely thank MassBay Community College and their strategic partner in General Motors ASEP,” Superintendent Maureen Lynch said, “Their donation of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado to our school’s Automotive Technology program will ensure that students get hands on instruction with the latest emissions systems and advanced safety technologies.”
The 2019 GMC and Chevrolet trucks were originally donated to MassBay Community College by the General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP)
The donation allows students at Whittier Tech to expand their skill set and enhance their knowledge around new diesel, electronic and safety technology while working with a recent model.
“This donation came at the most opportune time in this school year. The Automotive Repair and Service Technology program is not taking in any outside service projects, so students will now be able to work on the newest technology. Whittier is forever grateful for the new partnership with MassBay CC and GM ASEP.” Vocational and Technical Coordinator Paul Moskevitz said.
