Oh wow, just WOW!!!  :party:

 

This is a prize I follow every year, and now I can say I "know" the young woman who won it!

 

So very happy for my virtual GT friend and the fabulous math department there. Super exciting!!

 

You know, when she first learned that she was going to be nominated, of course I googled the award and found the bios of the past winners.  Reading the bios, you can see the influence the nominees' LORs must have had.  That is the only reason I thought she had a chance at, maybe, an honorable mention or runner-up--I knew the GT faculty would step up yet again.  My daughter doesn't even know who wrote her LORs--the nominator prepares the entire submission.  We really cannot say enough good things about GT math.

 

Thanks, everyone, for rejoicing with me.  Math played an important role in our decision to homeschool her in the first place, but I never actually expected it to become her life's passion (because, really--who is passionate about math???).

The December article about your dd was included in a newsletter my ds received from Tech yesterday. I just read it and all I can say is, "WOW!" Quite amazing!

 

 

 

Awww, thanks!  She will be the first to tell you that the credit is 10% her and 90% the math faculty at Tech.  One of the professors quoted in that article (Dr. Morley) is the one who set up the whole distance calculus program for Tech that let her take Calc II and III as a sophomore, which led to her on-campus DE junior and senior years, including in the class he mentions.  Anyway, she read the article and was surprised Dr. Morley even remembered her, much less so positively.

I also saw an article about your daughter! I agree with amathis229...she is amazing!

 

Tom Morley just reached out to me last week, and I was super surprised that he remembered me at all from years ago at Tech. That math department is so d**m special!

I am so jealous that you know him!  I feel like our family owes a huge debt to all of these professors that I will never meet.  I know my daughter does her part, making 'em proud and all that, but I really hope they appreciate the tremendously positive effect they have had on her life.

Well, are you just going to stand there or are you going to link the article for the rest of us?! We want to hear more about one of our “own†little hivelings.

 

I was going to search for it later, but this is a much better idea!!

I think it must be this one.

 

There is also a write-up about her in the AWM's newsletter, page 16 here.

 

They say pretty much the same thing.
