Math Professor Wins ‘Innovator Award’


High Point University Professor Lisa Carnell HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 20, 2012 – Dr. Lisa Carnell, professor of mathematics at High Point University, recently received the 2012 Innovator Award from the North Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics for her work on the annual math logo contest.

Carnell was the co-chair of the Math Celebrations Committee that oversees the Math Logo Contest, a contest where students in North Carolina submit drawings to NCCTM on what math means to them. The winning logo serves as the logo for the next state conference.

Carnell received the award along with a group of current and former chairs who worked together on the math logo contest at the state conference for the NCCTM in Greensboro.

“I am very pleased to be recognized for the work I, and many others, have done on the math logo contest over the years,” says Carnell. “The contest provides a way for many students to interact with mathematics in a way that is meaningful and enjoyable and to be recognized for their talents.”

Since 1994, NCCTM has recognized innovative contributions to the organization and to mathematics education in the state with the Innovator Award. The purpose of the award is to recognize and reward individuals or groups that have made an outstanding or noteworthy contribution by having founded, initiated, pioneered or developed some program in mathematics education of service to a geographical region of the state or the entire state.
