The following biography was written at the time of this scholarship establishment; some information may not be up to date:

Barbara Carter has three degrees from UNCG: a bachelor’s degree in mathematics (1970), a master’s degree in mathematics education (1976), and a bachelor’s degree in business administration (1986). She was a member of the Department of Mathematical Sciences faculty from 1981 – 2008. While on the faculty, she served as program coordinator for secondary licensure from 2001 – 2008. Prior to joining the UNCG faculty, she taught at the high school level for a decade. She is a life member of the UNCG Alumni Association.

Hal Phillips is a 1968 graduate of Guilford College with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and attained a Fellowship in the Society of Actuaries in 1976. He has been a member of the UNCG Department of Mathematical Sciences Industry Advisory Committee and the Science Advisory Board of the UNCG College of Arts and Sciences.

This scholarship was created to support UNCG in attracting and retaining students interested in pursuing studies in mathematics, statistics, computer science, one of the physical or biological sciences, or other science related majors offered within the College of Arts and Sciences. In recognition of Barbara’s career in education, their interest is supporting students majoring in one of these fields who intend to use their knowledge in the education of high school students. They believe it is crucial that mathematics and science be taught by creative, well-educated individuals with a solid understanding of subject areas and training to be competent teachers. They also recognize the need to attract highly qualified students capable of advancing knowledge in these areas through research.
