Carol Meyer Scholarship Award
LATM is pleased to honor the memory of Carol Meyer, an elementary school mathematics teacher who died unexpectedly at an early age. Carol loved mathematics and was a recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. She was an outstanding math teacher and a fervent worker on the LATM executive board. She was always generous in sharing her love of math with her students and fellow teachers.
In Carol's memory, the Louisiana Association of Teachers of Mathematics is pleased to award $500.00 scholarships each year to two high school seniors who have expressed an interest in pursuing careers in mathematics or mathematics education. It is our hope that future outstanding mathematics teachers or mathematicians will be helped along the way by this award.
