John M. Smith Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching
In 1991 the Mathematical Association of America instituted Awards for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics in order to honor college or university teachers who have been widely recognized as extraordinarily successful and whose teaching effectiveness has been shown to have had influence beyond their own institutions. In 1993 the MAA Board of Governors renamed the award to honor Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo.
Each year, every section of the MAA is invited to select a college or university teacher to be honored with a Section Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics. Recipients of the section awards then become nominees for the national Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics.
Sister Helen Christensen Service Award
In 2013, the MD/DC/VA Section instituted the Sister Helen Christensen Service Award. It is given each fall for outstanding service to the profession. The award is given at the MD/DC/VA fall Sectional meeting and comes with a certificate and citation published in MAA on-line, the section website and the MD/DC/VA section newsletter. The award is named after Sister Helen Christensen, in honor of her lifetime of service to mathematics education and the section.
