From staff reports

Diesel technology students at the Clarion County Career Center recently were involved with a community service effort that began as a simple communication between two people.

Pat Hilliard from Hunter Truck Sales contacted Terry Clark, diesel technology instructor about a truck repair that needed to be done for a man who had sustained a severe injury when he was hit from behind and backed over by a skid loader.

Charlie Snyder was injured in January 2019 and has a long road to recovery.

The repair of his truck was done by diesel students: Dillon Steighner, Riley Slaugenhaupt, Gavin Reesman, Corben Beamer, Bricen Clinger, Ian Jordan, Dalton Scott and Gabriella Fleming.

While the students were able to provide the labor at no cost to Snyder, Hunters Truck Sales supplied the necessary parts.

An article about an April fundraiser for Snyder and his family indicated he and his wife, Melissa are always doing for others in the community and never ask for anything in return.

Being involved in this effort helped to teach these students to help out those in need and to give back to their communities.
