      Albany Technical College was presented with a brand new Toyota forklift Thursday morning.

      Southern States TOYOTAlift and Florida Lift Systems, Inc. are responsible for the donation to the Automotive Technology and Diesel Equipment Technology programs.

      According to some of the teachers in the program, the vehicles students are currently using in class are older models, so having this new model will give them the opportunity to learn about the newest technology.

      Clifford Kyle, the chair of the automotive technology program, says having this new technology allows students to have a top-of-the-line, hands-on experience, and this experience is what's going to get them a job when they graduate.

      After the presentation, representatives from TOYOTAlift interviewed some of the students to possibly hire them when they graduate.
