AYES expands to Rockford

November 3, 2010

By Jim Butcher, Illinois AYES Manager

I participated Dec. 19 in the evaluation of two Rockford area schools for inclusion in the AYES program. I am happy to say the evaluation team members agreed that Belvidere High School in Belvidere and Hononegah High School in Rockton both merit inclusion. 

Rockford area dealers now can now grow their own technicians under the AYES label. Both schools should launch programs this spring. They worked hard to earn the right to carry the AYES badge, and we are pleased to have them both as our newest AYES schools in Illinois.

A big "thank you" goes out to the evaluation team members from BMW, Chrysler, and KIA  who gave up their day for this worthwhile endeavor. We appreciate the manufacturers’ support of the AYES program.

To discuss the AYES program, please call me at the CATA office at 630-424-6020.
