Jacks Valley resident Dr. Michael Hardie, community college professor of mathematics at Western Nevada College, has been elected west vice president of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges.

Founded in 1974, the association is dedicated to the improvement of teaching and learning of mathematics in the first two years of college with a vision of “Opening Doors Through Mathematics.” The organization addresses the concerns of the 20,000 full-time and part-time mathematics faculty who teach in two-year colleges. In the U.S., the association has about 2,500 individual members and more than 100 institutional members.
