JMU’s Expanding Your Horizons is receiving a Virginia Mathematics and Science Coalition (VMSC)  “Programs That Work” Award. Through this award VMSC recognizes exemplary mathematics, science, integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs for which there is evidence of a positive impact on student or teacher learning.  Programs were evaluated on a competitive basis based on the extent that they were able to:

  • Represent innovative, exemplary programs that have proven effective with all students or teachers
  • Demonstrate the important mathematics, science, and STEM concepts, skills or processes students and teachers learned as a result of the programs
  • Document impact on teaching and learning
Awardees were recognized at a conference and awards ceremony on February 18 in Richmond. 
 
Congratulations to JMU Mathematics and Statistics faculty Beth Arnold, Katie Quertermous, Celes Woodruff, Cassie Williams, and everyone else involved in making EYH successful.
