Students and faculty saw ways someone with limited mobility can safely move from truck to tractor.

“It’s not just the end user’s life that’s impacted but it’s the entire family, the community, ourselves back at the shop that get to do this stuff, it’s really rewarding to see somebody smile and continue to do what they love to do.” Life essentials, salesman, Bill Begley says.
