Qualified students in diesel- and heavy machinery-related majors at Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Schneebeli Earth Science Center may benefit from yearly awards through a scholarship fund established by Highway Equipment & Supply Co.

“Highway Equipment is pleased to provide this support to a program that has been one of our key sources of technical staff for over 20 years,” said William J. Flood, chairman of the company’s board of directors.
