Todd Bolenbaugh, instructor of material science and physics at Tolles Career & Technical Center, was recently named the recipient the 2017 Kishor M. Kulkarni Distinguished High School Teacher. Bolenbaugh received the honor from the ASM Materials Education Foundation.
The award was established in 2007 through a generous donation by Dr. Kishor M. Kulkarni, past trustee of ASM International, and his family to recognize the accomplishments of one U.S. high school science teacher who has demonstrated a significant and sustained impact on pre-college age students. The award included a $2,000 grant for the classroom plus $500 towards costs to the MS&T 2017 (Materials Science & Technology) Conference in Pittsburgh, where Bolenbaugh received the honor recently with his family and colleagues.
