We thank the late Howard Woodham (Georgia Tech alumnus, Engineering ’48) for the establishment of the Herman K. Fulmer Faculty Teaching Fund Endowment for the School of Mathematics (SoM), in memory of Professor Herman Fulmer, his former mathematics professor. Each year this award recognizes one of our faculty who exhibit genuine regard for undergraduate students during the first few years of their Engineering studies at Georgia Tech.
2020 Fulmer Prize: Co-awardees: Michael Lacey and Greg Mayer
The prize recognizes their work over several years to support student success; in particular, the distance learning students in Math 1554. Not only has the course content and delivery improved and aligned with our other offerings, but the program has grown and advanced, with a new asynchronous version now being launched. This course has wide impact throughout the Institute, from recruitment to providing students with a head start at Georgia Tech as they join different programs that rely on a solid background in Linear Algebra.
