KC’s Peterson awarded IMACC scholarship

Kishwaukee College student Clayton Peterson has been selected to receive the Illinois Mathematics Association of Community Colleges Memorial Fund Scholarship. Peterson, a graduate of Indian Creek High School, will receive a $1,250 scholarship from IMACC.

The IMACC Memorial Fund Scholarship is awarded each spring to students enrolled in two- and four-year colleges who have completed at least 30 credit hours of coursework at a community college, have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better, and plan to pursue mathematics or mathematics education as their major. Eligible students must write a personal statement, include college transcripts, and be recommended by a current member of IMACC or faculty from an institutional member.

Clayton Peterson graduated from Kishwaukee College in May and plans to transfer to Northern Illinois University to continue his education and preparation to become a high school mathematics teacher. While at Kishwaukee, Peterson was a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and was a nominee for Most Distinguished Member of that international organization. He maintained a 4.0 GPA at the college. He also was a tutor in the Developmental Mathematics Embedded Tutor Program at the college. As an embedded tutor, Peterson attended a remedial algebra class to model successful classroom behavior and take notes, assist the instructor as needed, plus hold office hours and review sessions.

KC mathematics faculty member Laurie Hoecherl had Peterson as a student for three semesters in her Calculus I, II, and III classes.

“Clayton is a great example of a well-rounded student who excels academically yet still finds time to be involved with tutoring and honor society service projects, in his community, and with his family,” Hoecherl said in a news release. “He will be an excellent teacher!”
