Stan Chadick Receives
LATM Lifetime Service to Math
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
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.
