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.
Spotlight on AMS
Five of our own attended the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (NCUWM) this year. A big congratulations especially goes out to Taylor Chott, Kownoon Her, Sujee Park and Sarah Verros. Each of these students presented posters at the conference. Kelsey Kalmbach, a presenter last year, was also able to attend.
The NCUWM is held each year and is open to outstanding undergraduate women mathematicians at all stages in their careers. The overall goal of the conference is to arm participants with knowledge, self-confidence, and a network of peers to help them become successful mathematicians.
A big way to go to each of these ladies who are well on their way in becoming successful majors and successful mathematicians!
