IMSA recently inducted 35 students from throughout Illinois into its chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS).
The students were honored during an induction ceremony at IMSA on November 2, 2010. IMSA’s National Honor Society Faculty/Staff Council members included IMSA Assistant Director of Student Life: Leadership and Service, Linsey Crowninshield; Vice President for Business and Finance/CFO Patrick Furlong; Wellness Faculty Member David Lundgren; President Dr. Glenn W. “Max” McGee (Adviser); and English Faculty Member Tracy Townsend.
Since IMSA does not have class rank, calculate grade point averages or GPA, the traditional criteria used to establish NHS chapters do not apply to IMSA.
“IMSA students made a compelling case to the national organization to allow IMSA to use different criteria—the service and production, and eventual dissemination of an original work of scholarship—as the primary criteria for members,” said IMSA President Dr. Max McGee.
The internationally recognized Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy® (IMSA) develops creative, ethical leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. As a teaching and learning laboratory created by the State of Illinois, IMSA enrolls academically talented Illinois students (grades 10-12) in its advanced, residential college preparatory program, and it serves thousands of educators and students in Illinois and beyond through innovative instructional programs that foster imagination and inquiry. IMSA also advances education through research, groundbreaking ventures and strategic partnerships. (www.imsa.edu)
