Math Prof Named Bike Advocate of the Year

It's another stop in a good year for Nick Horton, associate professor of mathematics and statistics. Horton, who is also the founder and president of the Friends of Northampton Trails and Greenways, accepted an award for 2010 Bike Advocate of the Year on the morning of Wednesday, May 19. The award is given annually by Mass Bike (Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition), a statewide bicycle advocacy group. Horton's group collected more than $10,000 as a donation to support the Rail Trail bike path network in and around Northampton. He received his award during Mass Bike's annual Bike Commute Breakfast on the Northampton courthouse lawn.

Horton was also recently named one of three winners of the 2010 Sherrerd Prize for Distinguished Teaching, given annually to Smith faculty members in recognition of their distinguished teaching records and demonstrated enthusiasm and excellence. The Sherrerd Prize will be presented, along with a film presentation, on Thursday, Oct. 28, at 4:30 p.m. in Weinstein Auditorium, Wright Hall.
