TMA Education Foundation boosts skyrocketing Rolling Meadows H S tech program

Rolling Meadows High School’s hands-on tech program has skyrocketed over the past several years by a breathtaking 1,150%. Six years ago, instructor Anthony Genovese started with 16 students. In 2018, 200 are enrolled in the program.

Wednesday, representatives of Technology & Manufacturing Association’s Education Foundation presented $14,500 to Rolling Meadows’ successful program to help buy a CNC Mini Mill.
