History Update

I recently received from really wonderful information regarding the history of the Williston Math Team from Kathy Connors, class of 1990!

My mother Dr. Mary Ann Connors, who served on the Williston mathematics faculty from 1981-1990, and longtime mathematics faculty member and former department chair Jack Cody co-founded the Williston Northampton School Math Team in 1982. Mrs. Connors and Mr. Cody served as co-advisers of the Math Team in that era.

The WNS Math team participated in meets at host schools with private and public schools in Western Massachusetts (The “Mathletes” – Western Massachusetts Mathematics League “WWML”). During the same time period the WNS Math Team also participated in the New England Mathematics League (NEML) contests.

WNS hosted a WWML meet in April 1988.

Check out these wonderful artifacts that Kathy sent over:
