## Sara Nelson Scholarship

Dr. Sara L. Nelson graduated from Georgia State College for Women (now known as Georgia College) in 1926 with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics with a minor in chemistry. After receiving her Ph.D. in mathematics from Cornell University, she joined the faculty of Georgia College and was a beloved teacher of mathematics until her retirement in 1968. As a result of a generous endowment from Dr. Nelson, the Department of Mathematics awards several scholarships each academic year. The recipients are chosen by the Sara Nelson Scholarship Committee which is comprised of several members of the Department of Mathematics and the scholarship is deposited into the student’s GC account.

## Kappa Mu Epsilon

Kappa Mu Epsilon is a national organization founded in 1931 to promote the interest of mathematics among undergraduate students. Its members recognize the great service of mathematics in the development of civilization. Kappa Mu Epsilon is a society for undergraduate students, as well as beginning graduate students and faculty, who have a strong commitment to mathematics.

The primary purposes of Kappa Mu Epsilon are:

- to further interest in mathematics,
- to emphasize the role of mathematics in the development of civilization,
- to develop an appreciation of the power and the beauty of mathematics,
- to recognize the outstanding mathematical achievement of its members,
- to familiarize members with the advancements being made in mathematics.

In 1998, the Department of Mathematics was granted a charter to form a chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, known as the Georgia Beta Chapter. To be eligible for membership, a student must have completed at least three semesters of college work, have completed the following coursework

- MATH 2263
- MATH 2150 or MATH 3030
- One 4000-level MATH course,
- Have a 3.0 grade point average in his or her mathematics courses.
