LBCC Receives $25k Gift from Central Willamette for ATTC

Central Willamette Community Credit Union has gifted $25,000 to Linn-Benton Community College’s Advanced Transportation Technology Center.

Funds will be used to purchase equipment and supplies used in training students in LBCC’s automotive technology program.


“Central Willamette is proud to be a part of this unique project which will make such a difference in the skills developed for the future,” said Elaine Eastman, president and CEO of Central Willamette Community Credit Union.

LBCC’s center is the only major broad-spectrum training facility for alternative fuel vehicles between Seattle and San Francisco, and will serve as a first step toward creating a base for alternative fuel technology in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

To date, the college has raised more than $7 million for the ATTC and is continuing to raise funds to support moving its heavy equipment, trucking and diesel program to the center.
