Sturgeon Bay Grad Receives Prestigious Math Award

 

Hundreds of students have passed through the halls of Sturgeon Bay High School but one student in particular has shone through.

2009 graduate MurphyKate Montee turned heads when she walked into Sturgeon Bay High School. Not only was she blessed vocally but she also had a passion for math and it showed in her grades. Montee went on to graduate as valedictorian and got accepted to the University of Notre Dame. Now a senior at Notre Dame, Montee is the recent recipient of the Alice T. Schafer Prize for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics.

This prestigious award is presented annually by the Association of Women in Mathematics. Montee will receive a $1000 award and will travel to San Diego in January to be honored at the Joint Mathematics Meeting conference.

Geometry teacher Rebecca Kiekhaefer says that Montee was a joy to have in class.

"She had a passion for learning and that was obvious," says Kiekhaefer. "She loved to learn and do schoolwork, that kind of stuff."

Other teachers we talked to say that MurphyKate was a joy to have in class and that they knew she would go far.
