Diesel Program Praised by Susquehanna Motor Company Service Manager

As the manager of a dealership’s service department I’ve had the opportunity to work with and hire graduates from the Diesel Truck Technology program at SUN Tech . Currently over 40 % of my technicians have come through SUN tech and several of my office staff are also graduates. I’ve hired students directly from the high school program as well as students who went on to other college level programs. SUN Tech is the only high school program that I’ve hired students directly from that were prepared for an entry level position at our dealership. The students that went on to the college level were very prepared for the next level of training and are usually hired at a higher rate.

Collision Repair Completes Project for the City of Sunbury

The SUN Area Technical Institute Collision Repair class of 2013 repaired and refinished a 2001 Chevrolet pick-up truck for the City of Sunbury. Students disassembled the vehicle and removed dents from the body. The body was then sanded and prepared to change the color from white to yellow using a two stage base-coat, clear- coat paint system.

Present in photos of the completed project are Mike Bordner, Public Works Supervisor for the city of Sunbury, and Ken Long of the Sunbury Public Works Department.
