Robert Bosch LLC to Receive Silver Star of Excellence


Robert Bosch LLC will be presented the Silver Star of Excellence Award during ATEA's 46th National Conference on Technical Education, March 11-13, 2009 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This award is presented jointly by the American Technical Education Association and the National Technical Honor Society.

All 27 Technology Centers were tasked with assessing the needs for the programs at their respective centers, based on a per program allocation by TBR. Advisory committees, consisting of representatives from local businesses and industries, were involved to ensure upgrades were aligned with their present and future needs.

The Bosch Clarksville plant demonstrated its involvement by donating idled equipment, tooling, cabinets, and out of date work benches to TTC. …
