Local News

LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – The Columbiana County Career and Technical Center just got a big donation.

Columbiana Ford gave the school a high-performance engine.

Friday morning, the company hand-delivered that engine out of a Focus RS.

Now, students will have the chance to get experience working on something that’s brand new.

“It’s kind of amazing. I got myself a 2005 F-150 and it makes probably half the power of the thing sitting over there,” said student Nathan Patterson.

“To be able to have hands-on touch, tear it apart and see what the new high-tech stuff is all about,” said Automotive Technology Instructor Jim Beardsley.

Beardsley said there are great career opportunities available in the automotive service industry for these students.
