CHAMPs Celebrates Third Annual Mu Alpha Theta Induction Ceremony

Crawford CHAMPs
As the auditorium doors opened, 103 proud students from the Crawford Educational Complex moved down the aisles, took their seats and waited anxiously for the induction ceremony to begin. Once the speeches were delivered and each inductee had the opportunity to shine on stage individually, the ceremony was finalized with a unified “I do” as the students were officially admitted into Mu Alpha Theta, the National High School and Two-Year College Mathematics Honor Society.

The third annual Mu Alpha Theta Induction Ceremony, held April 21, proved to be a resounding success with nearly 400 people in attendance including Supt. Bill Kowba, Area 9 Supt. Dr. Tony Burks, parents, school staff and community members.

Mu Alpha Theta is a national organization dedicated to inspiring keen interest in mathematics, developing strong scholarship in the subject, and promoting the enjoyment of mathematics in high school and two-year college students. Crawford CHAMPs is the only school in San Diego County with a chapter of this prestigious organization.
