Congratulations to the 28 students who were inducted into the McNicholas chapter of Mu Alpha Theta.
To be considered for this math national honor society, candidates must exhibit admirable character and excellence in math holding at least a 90% average in their honors-level math courses. They must also demonstrate a passion for math, for growing their skills, and for using their talents to positively impact the world around them. Members at McNicholas serve as math tutors as well as compete in math competitions to maintain membership.
Math teacher Mr. Steve Dalton said, “These young men and women have a God-given gift to see complex patterns and understand advanced mathematical principles. What is truly impressive, though, is the way they have dedicated themselves to grow their brilliant gifts with a heart for building a better future for their community and the world.”
