Congratulations to the Waterloo Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) team - students Tyson Andre, Benoit Maurin, and Anton Raichuk with coach Professor Ondrej Lhotak - on their bronze medal at the 2012 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) World Finals!
When the University of Waterloo dedicated the atrium of the new Mathematics 3 building this week, the name of the generous donor who helped make it possible wasn’t on it. He wanted his high school math teacher to have that honour instead. Bruce White is a retired educator who taught Mathematics at Vincent Massey Secondary School in Windsor, Ontario. He is a recipient of the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence and the University of Waterloo’s Descartes Award for Outstanding Teaching in High School Mathematics. His former student, John C.R. Hele, is the executive vice president & chief financial officer MetLife Incorporated.
