COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College and Necomb Oil Co. are joining forces to help the environment.

The Bardstown, Ky.-based Necomb Oil is donating vegetable oil waste from its FiveStar gas station stores in Adair County to the Lindsey Wilson Energy Technology Career Academy.

Students and teachers in the LWC Energy Technology Career Academy will turn the waste into biodiesel fuel, according to LWC Energy Technology Career Academy Director Heather Spoon.

"This is an exciting partnership between Lindsey Wilson and an environmentally responsible company like Newcomb Oil," Spoon said. "It's a great learning opportunity for our students, and it's also a great way for a local business to make a positive impact on the environment."

Lindsey Wilson's Energy Technology Career Academy works with students at Adair County High School to prepare them for work, college and citizenship by engaging them in project-based education enhanced by community partnerships and focused on energy sustainability and efficiency.
