WINNING STEM TEACHERS
AND STUDENTS ANNOUNCED
October 02, 2014
MARION COUNTY

– Central Florida’s STEM Alliance is recognizing 19 students and three teachers – all from Marion County Public Schools – for achievements in math and science.

Formerly known as PRISM awards (Promoting Regional Improvement in Math and Science), these cash awards spotlight teachers and students for their commitment to learning – specifically in the math and science fields.

This year’s Marion County STEM Alliance teachers include: Vicki Ambrose (science teacher at Dr. NH Jones Elementary), Sandra Crusher (science teacher at Liberty Middle), and John Jacobs (math teacher at North Marion High). These teachers each receive a $250 check and crystal-engraved award.

This year’s Marion County STEM Alliance student scholars include:

MATH:

7th grade – Cameron Martinez (Ft. King Middle) and Yisiara Aguirre (Dunnellon Middle)

8th grade – Alex Boschma (Ft. King Middle) and Eric Shaw (Osceola Middle)

9th grade – Brandon Schultz (Forest High) and Jacob Mosley (Vanguard High)

10th grade – Kevin Starr (West Port High) and Harris Cannon (Forest High)

11th grade – Philip Heath Smith (Forest High)

SCIENCE:

7th grade – Sophia Lopez (Liberty Middle) and Madison Handley (Ft. McCoy Middle)

8th grade – Yasmin Bacchus (Belleview Middle) and Skyler Pittman (Osceola Middle)

9th grade – Gabriela Sullivan (Vanguard High) and Hayley Pittman (Forest High)

10th grade – Mariah Hamby (Vanguard High) and Vincent Vaughns (North Marion High)

11th grade – Cassandra Mosley (Vanguard High) and Cody Liss (North Marion High)

No seniors are on this list because this year’s juniors will be the first graduating stem class in 2015. Student cash prizes range from $25 - $100.

The STEM Alliance, formerly known as the PRISM Project, includes 10 Central Florida school districts serving more than 850,000 public school students.

Marion County students and teachers will be recognized at the October 28 Marion County School Board meeting in Ocala.
