Tornado relief

March 10, 2014

Hino Trucks has donated a cabover truck to Canadian Valley Technology Center, a vo-tech located outside of Oklahoma City.  As a result of the May 31, 2013, El Reno tornado, CV Tech lost three diesel “teaching trucks” that were destroyed within a school shop on campus.

“While this truck won’t help rebuild the campus, hopefully it will be a useful learning tool for the program,” said Joseph Whalen, the OEM’s human resources manager.  Dr. Greg Winters, superintendent at CV Technology Center, stated that the donation “allows our teachers to use a new truck and piece of technology to do real-time, real-world training right now.  This truck is equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, so our students will have a learning tool that we did not have before.  The donation helps us keep the diesel program up to speed.”
