OCC Assistant Professor Laurel Cutright Elected to IMACC Board of Directors

Laurel Cutright PhotoOlney Central College Assistant Professor Laurel Cutright has been elected to a second three-year term as a member of the Illinois Mathematics Association of Community Colleges’ Board of Directors.

“I was excited to learn I had been elected again,” Cutright said. “I like having a presence from Southern Illinois on the board. It is nice to have some of the smaller and more rural colleges represented.”

Cutright was first elected to the position during the 40th annual IMACC Conference in 2015. She was notified of her re-election last month following the closure of electronic voting.

In the position, Cutright will be involved in planning the organization’s annual conference and producing the IMACC newsletter. She also will assist with selecting recipients of the IMACC Distinguished Service Award and the IMACC Memorial Fund Scholarship, which is awarded each year to a community college student who is transferring to a university to study math.

Cutright also will assist with implementing changes to the IMACC website, which will enhance the page’s overall look and enable members to pay their dues online.

Cutright has been a member of the association for 15 years and served on the IMACC Articulation Committee, which updated the state of Illinois’ articulation guide for math.

“If you are going to write a new course in mathematics, it is the best place to go,” she said of the guide.

The IMACC is a collection of community college mathematics professionals who attend to the ever-changing education needs of students and is a leading voice in forming policy and curriculum in Illinois mathematics education.
