Johnson College is proud to accept a generous donation of a diesel truck from FedEx Freight valued at $3,000. The 2006 Volvo Daycab Semi Truck will benefit the Diesel Truck Technology program by providing another truck for lab instruction. Jason Kozemko, Diesel Truck Technology Instructor said, “The College established a relationship with FedEx Freight after the 2017 Spring Career Fair on campus.  After the fair and some introductions to Johnson College students and staff, Greg Moser, Fleet District Maintenance Manager wanted to take a tour of our diesel shop to learn more about the program and view the facility.” Mr. Moser was very impressed with the program and the technicians Johnson College produces each year.

This new relationship led to his idea of providing the College with a newer truck for students to work on. On the day of the truck delivery, Mr. Moser spoke to the students about job opportunities with FedEx Freight and the type of employees they seek. “The FedEx truck will allow us to deliver class lessons that go above and beyond what students learn in a text book,” said Kozemko. “We are proud to have established a relationship with FedEx Freight because their time, talents, and generosity help us produce technicians that will excel in the workforce.”
