Congratulations to Lauren Baucom of Forest Hills High School - NC upon being selected to receive a Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). The PAEMST program, administered by the National Science Foundation (NSF) on behalf of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy recognizes outstanding teachers for their contributions to the teaching and learning of mathematics and science.
Forest Hills High School is a very special place with a very special way of doing things. Even before the school year began, Dr. Kevin Plue, principal, began emailing the staff about putting into words exactly what "the Jacket way" means to them.
