OTC Staff Shows Board Members New Truck for Lineworker Program

Prior to their regularly scheduled board meeting last month, Kevin Metts (right) showed Okefenokee Technical College’s Board of Directors the newly purchased truck and trailer for the Electrical Lineworker program.

Andy Brannen (left), VP for Economic Development, explained the benefits that the truck will provide to the program. According to Brannen, the truck will enable each student to have considerably more CDL training time with a vehicle that is better suited for the task. Linework Program receives truck
