LU senior receives scholarship from the American Mathematical Society

Jeremy Alm congratulates Destiny Allain on receiving the Trjitzinsky Award.

Lamar senior Destiny Allain of Warren has received the Trjitzinsky Award from the American Mathematical Society in the amount of $3,000. Allain is one of seven recipients in the country to receive this scholarship.

“The scholarship could not have come at a better time,” said Allain. “I was unsure whether I would have been able to pay for my next semester, so it has been a huge blessing.”

Every year, the AMS picks seven schools and one student from each school is chosen to receive the scholarship. Allain is the first student from Lamar University to receive the scholarship.

“Destiny has demonstrated significant growth in her seven semesters in the department,” said Jeremy Alm, chair of the Department of Mathematics. “She exhibits both talent and tenacity in her studies. After finishing her degree in mathematics in May 2018, she will stay at Lamar to finish a second degree in mechanical engineering. The Department of Mathematics is very proud of Destiny.”
