A Siena Heights University student was one of only four students nationwide to receive a $10,000 math scholarship.
Tim Fether, a junior secondary education and mathematics major from Pittsford, Mich., earned the Prospective Secondary Teacher Course Work Scholarship from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Supported by the Texas Instruments Demana-Watts Fund, the scholarship is awarded to full-time college or university sophomores who are pursuing a career goal of becoming a certified teacher of secondary school (grades 7-12) mathematics. The other scholarship recipients were Michigan Tech University’s Kevin McElrath, Ohio University’s Marissa Blewitt and Clarke College’s Kim Kanaly.
Fether, who will serve as president of SHU’s Student Senate this academic year, is also minoring in Spanish. He serves as a resident assistant and works in the SHU Writing Center as a peer writing assistant while carrying a 4.0 grade point average.
Fether is the son of Mark and Mary Fether.
