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 email@example.com) or the Mines Foundation.

Congratulations to Mike Nicholas
A big Congratulations! to Professor Mike Nicholas (he's the one on the left) who was recently honored by the Blue Key, Order of Omega and Tau Beta Pi Honor Societies with receipt of the Distinguished Faculty.
'Dr. Nick', as he is affectionately known by his students, has a positive reputation which extends well beyond our department. If you ever have a chance to take one of his classes, jump at it! They will probably fill quickly.
Congratulations Mike on this well deserved honor!
