On Wednesday, December 1, twenty members of the Kent Place Class of 2012 were welcomed into the KPS Math Honor Society, which recognizes juniors with high achievement in math during their freshman and sophomore years. In addition, twenty-one seniors were inducted into Mu Alpha Theta, the international high school and two-year college Mathematics Honors Society. Mu Alpha Theta inducts members who have been enrolled in three years or more of mathematics with a year-end grade of A- or higher.
The morning program began with remarks by Dean of Students Michelle Murphy and continued with senior co-presidents Kendall Beeman and Catherine Ciriello. Juniors were then inducted into the KPS Math Honor Society, followed by the senior’s induction into Mu Alpha Theta. After closing remarks by the Director of Upper School Elizabeth Woodall, students, parents and teachers celebrated the occasion in the Commons Room in the Mabie House.
Congratulations to all new inductees!
