Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.

The Lake County School District shares the sentiments of Dr. Mary Pittman, Mathematics Content Specialist for the Colorado Department of Education: “Please extend your heartfelt congratulations to Karl on the occasion of being selected for this prestigious honor in recognition of truly outstanding teaching and leadership in mathematics.” Well done, Mr. Remsen!Obit_Spacer_Thin
