Walls Go Up on New Diesel Tech Building in Ardmore

Posted:

ARDMORE,OK--Some students at the Southern Oklahoma Technology Center will soon take their hands-on education to another level.

Crews raised the walls for a new diesel building at the center.

The building allows for larger semi trucks to be serviced and, along with some new equipment, officials say it will provide a better hands on experience for the students.

"The students are very excited," said diesel instructor Jeff McCrathren. "I'm having to hold them back from getting up here and going to work already. As a matter of fact, we're going to come up and watch part of the construction of the new building."

School officials say they hope to have the building ready for students next fall, but plan on opening parts of the building as they are completed.
