The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy recently announced the recipients of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). As the PAEMST State Coordinator for the state of Utah, we are proud to announce the 2013 awardees:

*         Secondary Mathematics: Nathan Auck from Horizonte Instruction and Training Center in Salt Lake

*         Secondary Science: Andrew Neilson from Logan High School in Logan

Our state winners will join other awardees in Washington, D.C. for a series of events in their honor, including professional development opportunities, discussions with policy-makers on how to improve mathematics and science education, and an awards ceremony.  In addition, awardees will receive a certificate signed by the President of the United States and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

I hope you will take the time to learn more about Utah's awardees and their commendable work by reviewing their bios:
