Students Helping City of Linn

February 1, 2017

Thanks to State Tech’s Electrical Distribution Service program a city park in Linn, Missouri has new lights!
Linn’s Mayor Dwight Massey asked the instructors and the students from this state of the art program if they could help with lighting issues in the city park. “We have been in need of upgrading and repairing some of the lights at McGuire Park and the city does not own a bucket truck. When I contacted State Tech about helping with the problem they volunteered to tackle it,” said Massey. “It was fantastic to watch them work,” he said.
This is another example of how State Tech students receive on the job training that makes them career ready when they graduate. “The people of this region will be able to better utilize the park with the new lights,” said Massey.
