Howard Rolf Selected for Association Award

April 29, 1997

Dr. Howard Rolf, professor and chair of mathematics, recently received the Distinguished Service Award from the Texas Section of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). The award recognizes Rolf for his years of service to the Texas MAA and for his contributions in promoting mathematics in Texas.

Rolf has served the national organization for 40 years and served the Texas chapter for 34 years. He served one year as chair of the Texas chapter and served on the executive committee several times. Rolf served twice as vice president of the Texas Association of Academic Administrators of Math and Science (TAAAMS), which the MAA established. He currently serves as secretary/treasurer of the TAAAMS.

The Texas chapter of the MAA actively participates in establishing mathematical standards in elementary and secondary education. Baylor served as host of the 75th anniversary conference of the Texas Section of the MAA. Rolf said he has met many colleagues through the organization.

"The organization is a means where mathematicians get to know one another," Rolf said. "It is a great networking organization and a good source of ideas that has been a great benefit to me."
