Teresa Cohen Mathematics Service Award.

Joan Smeltzer, assistant teaching professor of mathematics at Penn State York, has been named the recipient of the Teresa Cohen Mathematics Service Award for 2019. Smeltzer received the award during a ceremony in April and was also the recipient in 2017. The Teresa Cohen Award was established by members of the mathematics department at Penn State in 1998 in honor of faculty member Teresa Cohen. The award recognizes mathematics faculty members for their outstanding service to the department and to students enrolled in its courses. Smeltzer is the only person to have won the award twice.

Smeltzer joined the Penn State faculty in 1994. Her teaching focus is developmental math students, and she teaches several different algebra courses both in person and online. In addition to her teaching role, Smeltzer served as the campus assistant registrar from 1998 to 2016, where her responsibilities included helping to build and implement semester course schedules and final exam schedules.

She earned a B.S. in meteorology from Penn State in 1983 and an M.S. in mathematics from Shippensburg University in 1993. She is a member of the Mathematical Association of America.

Smeltzer was honored with the Penn State York Advising Award in 2018. This award recognizes the innovative efforts of an adviser who has made a difference in the academic careers of students.
