Math meet adds up to fun

The eight annual Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Middle School Math Meet, a joint effort between the Kachemak Bay Campus of the Kenai Peninsula College and Homer Middle School, offered a challenging math experience April 26 to 90 students from nine district schools. Deep gratitude goes to our prize donors, Homer Electric Association for a $200 donation, Peninsula Internal Medicine for a $150 donation, and engineer David Thomas for his donation of a beautiful graphing calculator. These generous donors allowed us to purchase many great door prizes for thrilled recipients and the overall prize winners.

A huge thanks to judges Beth Graber, Karen Weston, Duncan Wanamaker, Eric Fenger, Rosemary Fitzpatrick; proctors Elise Boyer, Vicki Lowe, Teague Vanek, Michelle Waclawski; hospitality volunteers Susan Bunting and Betsy Vanek, and all the parents who donated morning snacks for all the mathletes. A big thank you also to the students who helped set up, take down, and participate in the meet! The commitment to excellence in math by students, staff, and the Homer Middle community makes this meet a satisfying and worthwhile experience for all.
