E. Bruce Brooks: Where are the headlines about math phenoms signing with UMass?
To the editor:
I follow the sports pages avidly, like everybody else. But I am waiting to see an item like this:
“MATH PHENOM SIGNS LETTER OF INTENT: Standout math student Florence David, of Acton Regional, has committed to UMass. Says math scout Zebulon Keene, ‘We are delighted. We have been following her League results for years. This plugs that hole in Topology. We will be very strong next year.’”
When such a story appears, I will know that the university is proving its usefulness to the Commonwealth, and that the U.S. is on its way to being able to compete with the technologically advanced nations.
