In Memory of Evelyn M. Silvia

Professor Evelyn Silvia, our colleague of 33 years, passed away on 1/21/06, after a courageous fight with ovarian cancer. She was 57 years old. The Mathematics Department has established the Evelyn M. Silvia Scholarship Fund for future mathematics teachers, in recognition of Evelyn's advocacy for the improvement of K-12 math education. The recipient of this scholarship will be announced at the Department's Annual Award Ceremony held in late May/early June each year.
