Georgia Southern professor wins Mathematical Association of America service award
Professor of Mathematics, Martha Abell, Ph.D., has been awarded a Certificate of Meritorious Service by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Southeastern Section.
“I never imagined I would be selected to serve on national committees or have the tremendous opportunity to serve on the MAA Instructional Practices Guide leadership team,” Abell said. “And while I never imagined these experiences happening, I am grateful that they did. I became a better faculty member, mentor and administrator because of these collaborations, and I accept this award in recognition of all who worked with me along this incredible journey.”
Each Section nominates a person for the award every five years. The sections are sorted into five groups and a different group submits their nominations each year.
Abell, who has taught math at Georgia Southern for almost 30 years and is the former Dean of the College of Science and Mathematics, won the Southeastern Section Distinguished Service Award in 2016.
