A Loss of One of Our Own
A large majority of the students that graduated from Mines from 2000 - 2011 may remember a 'feisty' Calculus professor that made their math life maybe better or maybe worse but always interesting. Carol Job taught mathematics at Colorado School of Mines for almost 15 years. A dedicated educator, Carol taught mathematics for 48 years in Catholic Schools, Jefferson County Public Schools and finally here at Mines, before taking her homespun, common sense approach to life to the golf course.
Unfortunately, Carol passed away last month after a very brave battle against cancer. She will be missed.
However, she will not be forgotten. Thanks to the support of friends, former students and several mathematics faculty members, a fund has been established in memory of Carol Job and in honor of Sharon McAuliffe, a longtime friend and colleague, to recognize and encourage excellence in instruction and to recognize students who have benefitted from such instruction and excelled beyond expectations.
For more information on how you might contribute to The AMS Honors Fund to Honor Excellence in Teaching and Learning, please contact either AMS (via firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Mines Foundation.

Congratulations to Carson Kent
Carson Kent is a recent recipient of a 2015 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) for his research proposal on Quantum Error Correction in the field of Computational and Mathematical Engineering. The GRF provides 3 years of support for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant achievements in science and engineering.
Carson is joined by 4 other outstanding Mines students, Ashley Bucsek in Mechanical Engineering, Katerina Gonzales in Geophysical Engineering, Kimberly Slinski in Hydrologic Science & Engineering, and Bradley Wilson in Geophysical Engineering.
Congratulations Carson on an excellent proposal and good luck on your future research!
