“Our campus is grateful for Tri-State Kenworth’s engine donation, and we look forward to strengthening our continuing partnership with the company,” says Kevin Clark, Campus President at East Windsor.

Each year, dozens of diesel and truck technicians complete Lincoln Tech’s diesel training program and join the New England workforce.  Last year, almost 95% of program graduates were hired in the field*. Hands-on training at Lincoln Tech – with the support of partners like Tri-State Kenworth – helps graduates keep the diesel industry competitive by joining diesel maintenance teams that keep the economy moving and growing.
