The George Kitchen Memorial Lectureship was established at Kalamazoo College in 1999 to honor the life of George Kitchen, a mathematician who had been an inspiration to students and fellow mathematics educators throughout his teaching career at Portage Northern High School and is still felt today.
This lectureship is supported through gifts from his students, friends, and colleagues. The purpose of these lectures is to provide an opportunity for high school students and mathematics educators to hear mathematicians speak about their own related work at a level intended for high school students.
For all of his life, it was George Kitchen’s firm belief that a love for mathematics and its applications could be cultivated in every student. These lectures are offered with that goal in mind.
If you would like to make a financial contribution to help preserve this lectureship, please make checks payable to Kalamazoo College and write Kitchen Memorial Fund on the memo line.
