Annual Math Counts Competition huge success!

Brian Dotson, MiSTEM Region 9 director recently coordinated the annual

Math Counts Competition at West Shore Community College on Tuesday,
March 14.

As the region 9 director, Dotson coordinated the 10 middle school teams,
arranged for the facilities, and worked with business partners, including
Nordlund & Associates, Harsco Rail and PCA. Dotson also served as
master of ceremonies, which included telling math-related jokes to the
tough middle schooler audience.

Associates, consulting engineers based in Ludington.

10 area schools including Hart, Ludington Area School District, Ludington
Area Catholic, Mason County Central, Mason County Eastern, Pentwater,
