We are just shy of a month away from our annual conference Soar to Greater Heights. We encourage any STEM educators who have not yet registered, to do so here. [2017 here.]
But more importantly, we would like to remind our constituency of the passing of Dr. Kinzer – long time advocate of PD for math educators in NM and Board Member – and our subsequent decision to enact an annual scholarship in her honor. The scholarship is $100 and the requirement is attending the conference in full. Applicants are required to answer the application questions linked to below.

NMCTM Members, NM Educators, et al,
It is with great sadness that the NMCTM reports that Dr. Kinzer, a long serving Executive Committee Member of the NMCTM and representative of the NCTM member affiliate program, passed away in a car accident in late February. Our condolences are with her family during this very difficult time.
To honor her years of service in the educational community, the NMCTM Board has unanimously voted that the annual scholarship for Soar to Greater Heights Conference be hereafter named in her honor. From this point forward, the scholarship will be known as the Dr. Kinzer Annual Memorial Scholarship.
It is our hope that this scholarship will continue to inspire future generations of educators with the story and legacy of her service, and serve as a model of how to give back to the educational community in NM and abroad.
The family has asked that anyone interested in paying respects to please consider giving to the NMSU scholarship fund that she spent years supporting. That donation link can be found here: Advancing NMSU
