Children in the community get the chance to Touch a truck in Starkville

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – Sudduth Elementary hosted Touch a Truck this weekend.

Students got the opportunity to meet the first responders and learn more about their role in the community.

Touch-A-Truck gives area children an opportunity to check out different vehicles and machinery.

Coordinators says this event could spark inspiration for children in the future.

“They get to meet the people that are driving them and operating them and they get to talk about what it’s like so you’re really providing children with the opportunity to learn about vehicles in the community but also maybe looking for future occupations that they might not have thought of and they might see themselves as the person that drives that concrete mixer one day,” said Bachman.

There were over 35 trucks at the Touch-A-Truck event.
