49 Proviso Students Win Math and Science Awards
Forty-nine Proviso Township High Schools District 209 students were honored for their excellence in math and science by the Society of Women Engineers and the American Association of Physics Teachers in a ceremony on March 9 at Proviso West High School.
Mr. Bob Hurley, a retired science teacher at Proviso East High School and an organizer of the ceremony, now in its 22nd year, said that the student winners of the awards should mention them in their applications for college and scholarships and resumes.
"The counselors in the colleges are going to recognize these awards," he said. "These are nationally recognized."
The honored students were able to thank those math and science teachers who had inspired them during their education, including Mr. Frank Lattyak, a Proviso West science teacher.
