43 Proviso Students Win Math and Science Awards

March 18, 2016 01:48 PM
Forty-three 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 East High School.
Along with receiving their awards, the honored students were able to thank those math and science teachers who had inspired them during their education. The appreciated teachers included Ms. Sandretta Lindsay and Ranjana Desai, Proviso East math teachers; Dr. Bozena Suwary, a Proviso West science teacher; and Mr. Alvaro Serna, a science teacher at Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy.
Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, superintendent of District 209, said that the students and teachers both have a stake in the students’ success. 
"The students have done the hard work in learning the material, but the teachers also have worked hard in preparing the material in a way that is instrumental in motivating their students to learn," she said. "This kind of collaboration is vital for students in achieving academic excellence."
The following students were honored at the ceremony:
