Grace McCourt, a senior honors student at Ashland University, recently earned a Pi Mu Epsilon Student Speaker Award in recognition of her presentation at the National Mathematical Association of America’s Mathfest conference.
McCourt’s presentation was titled “The Dishonest Salesperson Problem.” It focused on research that she conducted over the summer as part of her Honors Capstone Project, particularly a graph theory problem that was used in Mathematics Magazine.
“I was very grateful to be recognized as one of Pi Mu Epsilon's top student speakers at MathFest,” McCourt said. “It was wonderful to see the hard work that I have put into my Honors Capstone research pay off. Going to MathFest was an incredible opportunity to learn more about current research and take part in the math community. I am so grateful for the support I received from Dr. (Chris) Swanson, the Ashland math department, the honors program and the university as a whole.”
McCourt is a senior mathematics major from Wadsworth, Ohio. She attends Ashland, which is among the leading 200 universities and colleges in the 2016 listing from U.S. News and World Report.
