Clermont County seniors honored with math award

Nearly 200 high-achieving seniors from Ohio high schools have received the 2009 Honda-Ohio State Partnership Math Medal Award from a partnership between Honda of America Mfg., Inc. and Ohio State University. The award recognizes and honors the top mathematics student in each high school for their achievements in math courses throughout high school.

Class of 2010 Math Medal winners from Clermont County and their high schools are Jill Durham, Amelia; Andrew Shaw, Clermont Northeastern; Scott Koch, Milford Sr: and Amy Brown, Williamsburg.

Highlighting the importance of encouraging top math students to pursue a career in engineering, the award is presented through the Honda-Ohio State Partnership Program, which supports initiatives in education, research and public service. This year, the partnership expanded the program into the Southwest Ohio Region with a Math Medal Award event hosted Saturday at the GE Aviation Learning Center in Cincinnati to honor 66 top math students from 13 southwest Ohio counties.
