Western Nevada College has added some muscle to its Automotive Technology Department and a variety of equipment to its Machine Tool Technology Department through the generosity of community members.
Tammy Hurst-Sawyer of Carson City donated a 1985 Pontiac Firebird to the college. The muscle car is in running condition and has an estimated value of $4,995. It will be used for student learning in the collegeâ€™s automotive classes.
George Liddell of Carson City recently donated hundreds of tools to the college. His donations included 400 used drills, reamers and splitting saws with arbors.
â€œThrough donations from people in the community we serve, our efforts to provide quality education are strengthened. Your support of Western Nevada College and its students is greatly appreciated,â€ said WNC President Chester Burton.
