Stan Chadick Receives  First
LATM Lifetime Service to Math Education Award



The Lifetime Service to Math Education Award is designed to recognize an LATM member who has made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of math education in mathematics and/or mathematics teaching over a significant period of time.  Over a span of 40 years in mathematics and mathematics education, Dr. Stan Chadick, LATM’s first recipient of the Lifetime Service Award, has contributed on all levels: local, state, and national.  Just a few of his credentials include:

         Involvement in the mathematics education of students at the high school level and at the college undergraduate and graduate levels

         Provider of professional development to teachers via  programs such as MSP, LaSIP, and GEARUP and as a consultant for many school districts throughout Louisiana

         Writer and co-writer of numerous successful grants, author of a mathematics textbook, and creator of online course materials for both high school and college courses

         Acclaimed presenter at state and national conferences

         And last, but not least, a mover and shaker in LATM in which he has been a member since 1969.

In the early 1980’s, LATM was almost non-existent. Dr. Chadick was instrumental in enticing about 30 people to gather in Baton Rouge to discuss ways to bring LATM back to life. By 1989, the membership had grown from almost nothing to over 1000 members with membership growing each year. LATM would not be where it is today without Dr. Stan Chadick's involvement.

Dr. Chadick, we salute you for the many contributions that you have made to LATM and for your service to mathematics and mathematics education.
