May 11, 2015

In recognition of outstanding academic achievement, Sarah Wilson ’15 has been named the Stonehill College Mathematics Department’s 2015 Outstanding Student.

Wilson, a mathematics and economics  double major from West Suffield, Connecticut, has demonstrated a commitment to scholarship that exemplifies the habits of mind the Stonehill seeks to help students cultivate.

“Sarah is an exceptional student,” says Heiko Todt, assistant professor of mathematics. “This award is for her stellar performance in mathematics during her time at Stonehill.”

Wilson, who interned at State Street Global Advisors in Boston this semester, will pursue a Ph.D. in economics at Clemson University. She will begin her graduate studies in the fall.

“Sarah is not only an exceptional math student, but also a great economics student,” adds Todt. “While I am sad that she is leaving Stonehill, I am sure she will succeed at Clemson.”
