UNOH sends 9 students to WTS19


The University of Northwestern Ohio is sending nine College of Applied Technologies’ student ambassadors to The Work Truck Show 2019. This year, the Show is being held in Indianapolis, Indiana, from March 5-8, 2019.

The Work Truck Show is described as the must-attend industry event for companies and individuals within the work truck industry. The event is partially a trade show with more than 500,000 square feet of vocational trucks and equipment, along with informational classes and seminars throughout the week. Attendees can interact with thousands of industry professionals, set up meetings with current suppliers or customers; find solutions to resolve technical issues, and talk shop with industry peers at special events and receptions.

UNOH and NTEA have partnered together for the past 12 years during the Work Truck Show to allow students to attend the show as ambassadors. The students will help convention attendees and assist with classes and seminars. Students, by attending the show, will benefit from experiencing the new technologies in the industry, and be able to search for future employment opportunities. The students will even get the opportunity to participate and help coordinate the Ride-and-Drive event at the Green Truck Summit, where work trucks are being run on Natural Gas, Propane, Hybrid Electric/Hydraulic, and straight Electric Power.

The students attending the show are: Mitch Alsbro – Berrien Springs, Mich.; Kaleb Begley – Richland, Va; Samuel Larson – Gladstone, Mich.; Peyton Parlett – Greenwich, Ohio; Kevin Stevens – Honaker, Va.; Bill Wallace – Whitehouse Station, NJ; Joshuah Welk – Lima, Ohio; Josh Wenrich – Jeromesville, Ohio; and Kaitlin Whitt – Lima, Ohio. Students were nominated by their UNOH Instructors and selected following an interview process.
