  • Diana Herrington Scholarship for aspiring math teachers:                                                                                                                                                                  M-Power was a saying that Diana Herrington lived and breathed her whole life. A person would empower themselves more by using mathematical thinking and reasoning. Diana found a love for mathematics at a young age while on family hunting trips. While she pulled back the bow, she would visualize math in front of her. A mathematical question grabbed her attention in high school which later became her thesis in college, known as the Slater Theorem. During her college years, she worked at Vandenberg Air Force Base as a trajectory mathematician and government think tank member. Diana enjoyed looking at mathematical problems from different views. She continued to help government researchers as the “equation whisperer” since she could see unique details and explain what an equation could do. Her true passion was in sharing her love with mathematics, therefore moving away from research towards teaching. Diana spent most of her career teaching in Clovis Unified at Clovis High School where she received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching in 1999. This award led her to becoming a CalTAC member in 2005 until 2009. She continued to share her passion with different military think tanks while teaching mathematical education courses at Fresno State. Her legacy lives on in the minds and hearts of her students, colleagues, family, and readers of her google book.
