MEC Donates truck to SVCC

Thanks to Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative (MEC), the automotive program at Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC) now has a 2004 GMC truck to assist with training of future technicians. According to Jeremy Parenti, the lead instructor, "The donation of this truck helps to round out our fleet of vehicles allowing our students to have hands-on training in a variety of vehicle types."
