Rosemary Holguin Receives Trjitzinsky Scholarship
Rosemary Holguin receives plaque from Dr. David Hobby, chair of the math department at SUNY New Paltz.
Rosemary Holguin received a $3000 scholarship from the American Mathematical Society (AMS), through the Waldemar J. Trjitzinsky Memorial Fund. She is majoring in mathematics and adolescence education, and plans to graduate in fall 2008. Rosemary is a first-generation college student. She wants to become an effective and influential high school mathematics teacher, with the option to expand and apply her knowledge in research. Last summer Rosemary worked with faculty on two different research projects that she found to be challenging, but a great experience: "Positivity of Polynomials" and "Changes of Structure and Electron Density of Cadmium Sulfide Clusters with Zero to Four Organic Ligands Attached."
