Activities: Most of the PME activities this year piggybacked off of the activities of Gonzaga's Math Club. Several PME students did, however, attend the PNW MAA Meeting (April 1st-2nd, 2016 in Corvallis, OR).

Do any of your chapter members plan to attend or present at the PME National Meeting this year? Unfortunately, not this year. Hopefully in 2017!

Do you have any news about current students or recent graduations? For example, scholarships or other awards, acceptances to graduate school, paper presentations at conferences, etc.

If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
We were awarded a $100 Prize Grant, which we used to help award the MAA Awards (given to three outstanding juniors), Service Award (outstanding service to the department), Putnam Award (highest score on the Putnam Exam), and Underclassman Award (outstanding freshman). We held the departmental awards ceremony in conjunction with the PME Induction, which again worked out very nicely.
