Peterbilt of Dublin Supports OFTC Diesel Program
Peterbilt of Dublin hosted a golf tournament at the Dublin Country Club on March 16, 2023, with its proceeds to benefit the Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) Diesel Equipment Technology program.
Peterbilt representative Daniel Starley presented OFTC Foundation Chair Kathryn Willcox and OFTC Diesel Instructor Brent Redfern with a check in the amount of $7,203.17 for the program.
“We are so appreciative to Mr. Starley and Peterbilt of Dublin for their support of Oconee Fall Line Technical College and the diesel program,” said Kathy Aaron, OFTC’s Executive Director of Institutional Advancement. “Donations like this help our graduates with access to additional scholarships, new equipment, and so much more.”
“We currently have one graduate employed at Peterbilt of Dublin, and two students in apprenticeship,” explained OFTC Diesel Instructor Brent Redfern. “While students attend college to learn new skills of a chosen field or trade, OFTC students also have the added benefit of local employment connections and career opportunities like we have with Peterbilt of Dublin. Mr. Daniel Starley’s support of our program and its expansion is a connection that benefits us all: our College, our graduates, and our community including businesses like Peterbilt of Dublin.”
Starley stated that he is already making plans for an even bigger event next year.
