2010 Indiana Section of the Mathematical Association of America
Distinguished Service Award
The Indiana Section Distinguished Service Award was initiated in 1993 to honor a member of the Section by acknowledging his or her extraordinary contributions to the Section and outstanding efforts consistent with the stated purposes of the Mathematical Association of America. These purposes include promoting the interests of and improving education in the mathematical sciences in America, especially at the collegiate level.
This year’s recipient has been a member of the Association since 1976 and became a member of the Indiana Section shortly thereafter. He earned his Bachelor’s degree at St. Peter’s College in New Jersey, his Master’s degree at the University of Delaware, and his Doctorate of Arts degree from the University of Northern Colorado. He has additional course work in computer science from North Dakota State University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison; not surprisingly, he is an active member of SIGSCE as well as the MAA.
This year’s recipient has been active in numerous MAA committees including the Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics (CUPM) and several of its subcommittees, the Committee on Mathematics Across the Discipline, the Committee on Assessment, and the Editorial Board for the Classroom Resource Materials series. He has been the organizer of numerous MAA contributed paper sessions, three PREP workshops, and most recently a conference of meteorologists as part of the Curriculum Foundations Project. Besides the many contributed talks he has given at Section and national meetings, this years recipient has contributed to or was a co-editor of two MAA Notes Volumes, contributed to or was a co-editor of two MAA Reports, authored multiple articles in the MAA FOCUS, and published in the American Mathematical Monthly.
This year’s Indiana Section of the Mathematical Association of America Award for Distinguished Service goes to Bill Marion of Valparaiso University.
