West Hills Tractor Donation
Washington County Agriculture Departments will be receiving new tractors from West Hills Tractor in Jonesborough.
West Hills Tractor of Jonesborough and the Agriculture Department David Crockett High School are ready to fulfill an agreement established last fall. Representatives from West Hills Tractor approached Washington county schools last school year to discuss a new Lease program that New Holland tractors offer. Per the agreement, the New Holland tractors will be placed at each high school for their use up to 150 hours or approximately 1 year at which time the tractor will be replaced with a new one. Additionally, when the tractor needs regular maintenance, West Hills Tractor will send a qualified service technician who will provide instruction to our Agriculture students on basic principles of major components of diesel fuel engines. Washington County Schools would like to thank West Hills Tractor for their continued support and partnership with our Agriculture Departments.
