Kelley receives Honda-Ohio State Math Medal Award

One high-achieving Adams County high school senior received the Honda-OSU Math Medal Award from a partnership between Honda and The Ohio State University. The award recognizes the top senior mathematics student in 232 high schools in southwest and central Ohio.

The math medal winner from Adams County is Kendall Kelley from Peebles High School.

This is the seventh anniversary of the Southwest region Math Medal Awards, presented by the Honda-OSU Partnership, a university-industry partnership that supports programs in education and research to benefit the transportation industry. This year 100 seniors, the highest number yet, from 16 counties in southwest Ohio received the award.

Eighty-five of the honorees attended the Southwest region ceremony on Oct. 31 at the GE Aviation Learning Center in Cincinnati. Recognized as their school’s top math student in the Class of 2016, each student received a pewter math medal, plaque and $100 gift card from Honda and Ohio State’s College of Engineering.

In addition, the award comes with a $3,000 scholarship opportunity at Ohio State’s College of Engineering for the 2016-2017 academic year. Over the past six years, 33 Southwest region math medal recipients have gone on to receive the $3,000 scholarship.

“We are grateful that our strong partnership with Honda provides the opportunity to recognize these high school seniors who excel in math and science,” said David B. Williams, dean, Ohio State College of Engineering. “We hope these outstanding students will put those talents to use as Buckeye engineers.”

The Honda-Ohio State Partnership is a unique collaboration between Ohio State and Honda that supports initiatives in education, research and public service to positively impact students, faculty, public and private sector practitioners, and the transportation industry as a whole.

Honda operates two auto plants, an engine plant and a transmission plant in Ohio, along with a major vehicle research and development center and engineering, logistics and purchasing operations. With 13,500 associates, Honda is one of Ohio’s largest private employers.

Ohio State’s College of Engineering places 14th nationally among public university engineering programs ranked by U.S. News and World Report, and its more than 7,500 undergraduate students choose from 14 different engineering majors.
