The 2015 mathematics award was given to senior Dayna Mercodante. Next year is the last year that this award will be given.
Dayna is both a math and biology major and equally contributes to both. She did an internship at the University of Missouri where she used mathematics to display environmental models.
She has always excelled in the mathematical field and even tutored math since her second semester of freshmen year.
“Dayna’s considered one of the smartest people at this school for both her disciplines. She’s always been at the top of her classes and on top of her academics,” said Dayna’s friend James “Bubba” Willette.
