Lemont High School welcomed its second class of Mu Alpha Theta Honor Society inductees with a brief ceremony Nov. 14. A total of 47 students were honored for their excellence in mathematics.
Mu Alpha Theta is a national high school and two-year college mathematics honor society whose membership annually includes nearly 90,000 students at more than 1,800 schools across the country. The organization recognizes and encourages students who enjoy and excel in mathematics. Honorees are dedicated to an interest in mathematics and to developing strong scholarship in the subject.
To be eligible for induction into Mu Alpha Theta, students must compile a grade point average of 3.5 or better in their mathematics classes and are required to fulfill membership obligations. Lemont High School’s Mu Alpha Theta honorees have totaled hundreds of volunteer hours working before and after school in the Math Center and with individual students. Members are eligible for national scholarships.
The chapter’s first class of inductees in April 2012 included 67 members, many of whom are still active in the organization and are either juniors or seniors this year.
The chapter president this year is senior Lynn Stanwyck, while seniors Szymon Koszarek, Szymon Krzeptowski-Mucha, Nina Moeller, Sarah Reaves and Katie Washagan and juniors Alex Albrecht and Margaret Rogers all serve as chapter council members.
