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.

Congatulations to Becky Swanson
Congratulations to Prof. Becky Swanson as one of the joint recipients of the 2015 Martin Luther King Jr. Recognition Award.
Becky co-developed the Society for Women in Mathematics (SWiM) - a program designed to create a community of support for female faculty and students. In addition to holding leadership positions in several AMS programs that have and will directly impact our majors, Becky serves as a role model who encourages other females, and all students, to participate in a variety of the AMS activities available to them.
Congratulations Becky for a job well done!
