Please join us in congratulating Renee Adonteng, this year’s recipient of the $3,000 Waldemar J. Trjitzinsky Scholarship awarded by the American Mathematical Society (AMS). Renee is a junior at VCU, working on a mathematics degree with a concentration in applied mathematics. She hopes to pursue a career in actuarial science once she completes her degree. She joined the mathematics department after changing her major from studying health and physical exercise science. We are certainly glad that she decided to choose mathematics as her major. Congratulations Renee!
