USJ announces the Janice Ann Baldwin Middle School Mathematics Award and Scholarship

This spring, The University School of Jackson will award a student who exhibits a pattern of service, a love for mathematics and displays leadership through the Janice Ann Baldwin Middle School Mathematics Award & Scholarship in memory of Mrs. Janice Ann Baldwin.

 

Mrs. Baldwin taught mathematics at Episcopal Day School before joining the University School of Jackson faculty in 1988. She taught 7th and 8th grade honors math and served as the mathematics department chair until her retirement in 2012, concluding her teaching career that spanned 48 years. Her love for her students was unsurpassed, leading her to enthusiastically celebrate their accomplishments and encourage them with hope for a better future. 

 

Middle School Director Margaret Livingston shared, “We are overjoyed with the opportunity that the Baldwin family has given our students as we honor Janice’s legacy. It’s been a privilege to work with Dr. Baldwin and to learn how his vision for the Award and Scholarship aligns with our mission for excellence founded in personal integrity, mutual respect, and lifelong learning. We look forward to granting the inaugural Award and Scholarship this year!”

 

The Janice Ann Baldwin Middle School Mathematics Award and Scholarship is granted to an 8th-grade student each year and is accompanied by a $500 scholarship granted to the student upon graduating from USJ. Along with a $500 scholarship, the recipient's name will be engraved on a plaque that will be displayed in the USJ Middle School. 

 

Charles M. Baldwin established the Janice Ann Baldwin Middle School Mathematics Endowment Fund to foster excellence in the study of middle school mathematics for students at the University School of Jackson. Dr. Baldwin hopes to grow the endowment over time to benefit more students.
