Kay B. Wilson Scholarship

The Kay B. Wilson Scholarship was established in 2002 by Kay Wilson. She is a 1963 mathematics graduate of Illinois State University, received her master's degree in math education from University of Illinois, taught math in local schools ranging from junior high to college, worked in the State Farm systems processing area for 22 years, and has returned to teaching. Kay has been engaged in volunteer work helping low income women and encouraging girls to consider challenging careers, particularly in fields related to mathematics. She and her husband, Tom, have two sons. The scholarship supports a student who understands and promotes the the value of diversity, including women, in the field of mathematics.
