Haywood Community College Electrical/Electronic students have a new small bus to travel to work sites thanks to a collaboration between several entities and the HCC Foundation. The bus was paid for with funds from the HCC Foundation and other funds. Haywood County Habitat for Humanity provided funds for new tires. HCC Autobody Repair Instructors Mark Hicks and Mike Moore prepared the bus to be painted. Rick Styles, Haywood County Schools employee, painted the bus using Martin Senour Paint donated from Randy Stocker, Paint & Supply Sales Manager at NAPA Auto Parts. Special thanks to HCC security for escort to the county garage, Electrical student Andre Rodriguez for helping pick up the bus, and to all HCC electrical/electronics students for preparing the bus and making it into a work vehicle.

The bus was made possible through a collaboration with many local entities and will be used as a student work vehicle for the program.
