RCBC students earn distinction at this year’s New Jersey Undergraduate Mathematics Competition
Rowan College at Burlington County students earned distinction at this year’s Garden State Undergraduate Mathematics Conference, which featured a mathematics competition with top math students from both two and four-year schools in the region at Rowan College at Burlington County’s Mount Laurel Campus.
16-year old Liam Doherty, of Mount Laurel, tied the record for the highest an RCBC student has ever placed in the individual portion of the competition. He placed ninth out of 77 students. In addition, he received an Outstanding Student Talk Award for his research presentation on the Physical Applications of Fourier Analysis during the Garden State Undergraduate Mathematics Conference poster session.
Doherty will be receiving his high school diploma from Burlington County Institute of Technology this spring and is already working full-time at Radwell International as an electronics technician. He earned a scholarship to attend Rowan University and will start his junior year at the university this fall. His goal is to complete his master's in math by 20 years old, eventually earn a doctorate, and work in scientific research.
Along with his teammates, Doherty and RCBC students Anna Wilson, of Shamong, and Sean Heffernan, of Southampton, won Best Team from a Two-Year College. Overall, the team ranked 14th out of 28. RCBC students have won this award twice in the past three years.
RCBC’s other teams had admirable showings as well. The team of Gaspare Carollo, of Marlton, and Daniel Kellaway, of Burlington Township, who also placed 16th in the individual competition, placed second among two-year schools and ranked 16th overall. Margaret Doyle, of Marlton, Cheyanne Kelly, of Burlington City, and Simran Kaur, of Willingboro, placed third among two-year schools and ranked 22nd overall.
The undergraduate conference was part of the Joint Spring Meeting of the Mathematical Association of America’s New Jersey Section and the Mathematics Association of Two-Year Colleges. It was held at RCBC’s Mount Laurel Campus for the first time and included three keynote addresses, a panel discussion, a workshop, an undergraduate poster session, two undergraduate oral presentation sessions, two special contributed sessions, and the New Jersey Undergraduate Mathematics Competition.

Course selections for the 2017-18 school year took place during the month of April. Please review your son or daughter’s courses and contact their counselor with any questions. In most situations, counselors suggest that students go for the challenge, but do not overwhelm themselves to the point where coursework suffers, and they are unable to maintain satisfactory grades. So, plan ahead. When it comes to academics, create a tentative sequence of courses that will develop in scope and depth over one's time in high school. At the same time, determine whether the schedule of courses for the coming school year considers all the different expectations of time; including class and co‐curricular demands, voluntary service, sports and work expectations.
In order to apply for financial aid, most colleges and universities require the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) which should be submitted as soon after January 1, 2018 as possible. Since each college has a different deadline for financial aid, you are encouraged to submit our form online for more rapid response. If you do not have all your information available, you can estimate your income based on last year’s figures and update your submission when the form is returned to you for verification. The website is https://fafsa.ed.gov/.
