Math honors society initiates new members

— The Alabama Alpha Chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, a national mathematics honorary society, initiated new members on April 14 during a ceremony held in the ballroom of the Sandridge Student Center.

Special guest speaker was Dottie Gasbarro, a retired Athens State University mathematics professor. 

Dr. Ronald Merrit, Athens State mathematics department chair, welcomed the speakers and guests.

Professor Patricia Glaze serves as the chapter advisor and Dr. Derek Newland assisted with the initiation.

New initiates installed for the upcoming year include Christopher Vaughn, Rebecca Harper, Tanya Sanderson, Tristan Shields, Sarah Cox, Casey Gaddis, Kathryn Allison, Tyler Calvert and Brad Mitchell.

Kappa Mu Epsilon was founded in 1931 to promote interest in mathematics among undergraduate students. Its chapters are located in colleges and universities of recognized standing that offer a strong mathematics major.

The chapters' members are selected from students of mathematics and other closely related fields who have maintained standards of scholarship, have professional merit, and have attained academic distinction.
