LDI is excited to announce the deadline for the TechUp ToolUp Scholarship & Tool Allowance Program has been extended to April 30 for qualifying students interested in becoming diesel mechanics. LDI will purchase the standard toolbox and tools, and a portion of the students’ tuition.
"For many students, trade and technical education is a critical pathway to a successful, lifetime profession," said Derrek Branham, store manager and salesperson at LDI-Garden City. "We are committed to creating an atmosphere in which these students may achieve and to ensuring that students in the agriculture business, particularly in western Kansas, have a road to success."
LDI also has the TechUp ToolUp Scholarship & Sign-On Allowance Program for those currently enrolled or have just graduated from a two-year diesel tech program. Students currently enrolled in a two-year diesel tech program may be eligible for the tuition portion of the program or students can receive up to a $6,000 Sign-On allowance upon completion and graduation of the two-year diesel tech program.
"At LDI, we emphasize integrity, excellence, financial strength, and teamwork. "They're part of the TechUp ToolUp initiatives," Branham explains. "Regardless of how swiftly the world changes, people with such values will be in demand in technological employment."
