  Dr. Vincent Snipes, professor of mathematics and director of the Center for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU), will serve as president-elect of the Central Region of the North Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCCTM).

    Snipes will be sworn into office and a three-year term on the Board of Directors at the group’s meeting in May.  The NCCTM, a professional organization for mathematics teachers in North Carolina, is divided into three regions with the Central Region composed of Alamance, Anson, Caswell, Chatham, Cumberland, Davidson, Davie, Durham, Forsyth, Guilford, Hoke, Lee Montgomery, Moore, Orange, Person, Randolph, Richmond, Robeson, Rockingham, Scotland, Stanly, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin counties.  Its membership includes teachers from kindergarten through university level as well as other professionals who work with curriculum and materials for teaching mathematics.

Mathematics Education Network, a program designed to strengthen the quality and increase the number of teachers in mathematics and science. The Center conducts a pre-college program to increase the number of high school graduates prepared to pursue careers requiring mathematics and science and also supports a Professional Development Center to provide programming for math and science teachers.
