Steve Masse, Town Fair Tire regional manager for Maine, recently presented four Town Fair Tire Foundation Toolships to students at Capital Area Technical Center.

Each one of the $500 toolships went to graduating seniors entering the workforce to allow them to purchase tools and equipment necessary to begin their careers, according to a news release from the Augusta-based technical center.


Jacob Molnar of Richmond, a student from Richmond High School, is enrolled for the second year in the auto body program. He is participating in an internship at Lee Toyota and after graduation plans to work in the automotive collision field. He plans to use the toolship to purchase tools he will need for his career.


Jayda Oyster of Augusta, a student from Cony High School, is enrolled in the plumbing and heating program. She is employed by Glenridge Nursing Home. She will use the toolship to begin her training as a Certified Nursing Assistant.


Connor Whitley of West Gardiner, a student at Gardiner Area High School, is enrolled in the plumbing and heating program for the second year. He will start as a plumber apprentice and use the toolship to purchase tools to begin his career.


Andrea McDonald of Monmouth, a student from Monmouth Academy, is enrolled for the second year in the plumbing and heating program. Through the class, she learned she likes HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) work the best. She plans to attend UA Local 716 training program and plans to use the toolship for training costs and tools.
