Dr. Sherrie Emoto Mathematics Scholarship

Sherrie Emoto attended Fullerton College as a mathematics major, where she was awarded the following departmental awards—the Wilber and Ellen Selfridge Memorial Mathematics Scholarship, the Foreign Language Book Award in French, the Foreign Language Book Award in Spanish, and the Bank of America Community College Award in Foreign Languages. She was selected as a Woman of Distinction in 1976 for Foreign Languages and in 1977 for Mathematics. That year she graduated with a 4.0 cumulative GPA , transferred to CSU Fullerton, and graduated summa cum laude two years later. She is a life-member of Phi Kappa Phi, National Honor Society. As the only female student in her class of eleven at the Stanford University Ph.D. program in statistics, she went on to earn Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. She completed post-doctoral work at the University of Wisconsin and continued on to work at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, as a statistician. Sherrie appreciates the excellent teaching and honors she received at Fullerton College and wants to return the generosity and kindness by offering this scholarship through the Fullerton College Foundation where she is a Silver Donor.

This scholarship is given to a full-time student with an overall GPA of 3.55 and a 3.75 GPA in their Mathematics major. The student must be graduating and transferring to a four-year institution with a goal of becoming a college mathematics professor.
