The Night Shift class at the Four Rivers Career Center recently had fluids donated to them for their tractor restoration project by Sieveking, Inc. in High Ridge.

Sieveking, Inc. is a marketing and service oriented distributor of petroleum products to a wide range of industrial organizations in and around the St. Louis area, offering premium diesel for fleet fueling, storage tanks, or tank wagons.

The Night Shift program, led by FRCC Automotive Technology Instructor Dan Brinkmann, deals with anything to do with motors, particularly transportation – cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, boats, golf carts or whatever the case may be.

Students who want to be involved meet every Tuesday and Thursday during the school year at the Four Rivers Career Center from 3-7 p.m. Every session is different, and if it has a motor, the students are working on it as one of their projects.

A photo of the Night Shift students with the donated fluids is below.
