PORTLAND, Ore. - Congratulations to seniors Sarah Sandholtz (Volleyball), Sara Villanueva (Women’s Basketball), and Erin Yoshida (Women’s Rowing) who were inducted into the national mathematics honor society, Pi Mu Epsilon on October 24, 2012. 

Incorporated in New York on May 25, 1914, Pi Mu Epsilon is a national mathematics honor society dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding.  To promote mathematics, the National Pi Mu Epsilon Council sponsors an annual conference in conjunction with the Mathematics Association of America’s annual MathFest.  Pi Mu Epsilon also sponsors a journal devoted to topics in mathematics accessible to undergraduate students.

Lewis & Clark College is the 345th Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon.  It is known as the Oregon Eta Chapter since it is the seventh Chapter chartered in the state of Oregon, and Eta is the seventh letter of the Greek alphabet. 

Each new member of PME pledges to exert their best efforts to promote true scholarship, particularly in mathematics; and support the objectives of the Pi Mu Epsilon Honor Society. 

Congratulations again to Sarah, Sara, and Erin as the newest Pioneer members of the Oregon Eta Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon!
