Alana Huszar Named 2015 Goldwater Scholar

Alana Huszar ’16, 2015 Goldwater Scholar.

The Mathematics and Statistics Department is pleased to announce that Junior Alana Huszar, a Junior Mathematics major, has been named a 2015 Goldwater Scholar. Alana is a very familiar face to anyone in the Mathematics and Statistics Department. She’s one of our student tutors and, if you’ve ever stopped by the office, it’s likely you’ve gotten a cheerful greeting or an upbeat comment from her, since she’s usually here even when she isn’t working. She has a long list of scholastic accomplishments, and we are very proud that she has now added Goldwater Scholar to that list.

Alana the fourth department major to have received this accolade. Our previous winners were Syndi Barish  ’15 (double major with Biology) who won last year, Glen Wilson ’10, and Nick Locantore ’94. Goldwater Scholars are chosen as a result of a highly selective national competition which honors exceptional undergraduate students who plan to pursue graduate degrees in the STEM fields and careers in research.

Congratulations Alana!
