Four Pima Community College students have been awarded Art Alberding Math Scholar Awards for 2013-14.

The students are Marina Nedyalkova, Paul J. Wells, Barton Yadlowski and Benjamin Yates. The scholarships are presented annually to qualifying PCC students and are named in honor of Dr. Art Alberding, Faculty Emeritus and one of the first members of the Colleges’ math faculty. Last year, the college also gave four of the scholarships.

The scholarships are funded in part by the annual Alberding Amble 5K and 1-mile Fun Run/Walk. This year’s event raised a total of $1,360 for the Art Alberding Math Scholar Award.

“Generosity ran high. Several runners contributed an additional donation to the scholarship,” said event organizer and PCC East Campus math faculty member Ana Jiménez. “PCC is looking forward to an even bigger and better event at our fourth annual Alberding Amble next April!”

Participants in the April 27 event at Lincoln Park, 4325 S. Pantano Road, ranged in age from 8- to 76-years-old. Registration fees totaled $775 and donations to the scholarship were $585. A total of 22 runners and walkers participated in the 5K. Medals were awarded to the top three men and top three women in each 10-year age bracket.

The fourth annual Alberding Amble is schedule for Saturday, April 12, 2014.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
