The Tahoe conference provided a successful end to our 2013/2014 fundraising season.  We started a new tradition with our first annual Foundation Gala on the first night of the conference.   I’d like to thank the following; Pearson Publishing, the MontBleu Hotel, CMC3 , all those who helped with food and set up, and everyone who braved the blizzard and bought tickets to the Gala.   As always, all money raised will be used to fund student scholarships.    

Student Speaker Competition

The Foundation was once again delighted to facilitate the annual Student Speaker Competition, made possible by a generous gift from past CMC3 president Debra Landry.  This year’s winner, JoeAnna McDonald from Sacramento City College,  gave a talk entitled “Elliptic Curves".  Thank you to Larry Green for running the competition.
