Missouri THETA 50th AnniverseryMissouri Theta held the 50th anniversary of their installation into Kappa Mu Epsilon. The ceremony was timed to coincide with Evangel University's homecoming which was held October 7-9, 2021. Missouri Theta was installed on January 12, 1971. Dr. Glenn Bernet was the charter Corresponding Secretary, and he was able to attend the anniversary. Missouri Theta was awarded the McKee/Tosh Outstanding Chapter Award at the national convention that was held virtually on April 16-17, 2021. Dr. Joseph Bohanon, a KME member who presented two papers at past KME conventions, was selected as the outstanding alumnus of Evangelâ€™s science department, and gave a talk on cryptography. Joe works for the Department of Defense. We were fortunate to have most of the full time math teachers who taught at Evangel over the last 50 years. From left to right they are: Glenn Bernet, Bill Cook, Don Tosh, Dianne Twigger, and Duane Huechteman. It was a very memorable day!
