Congratulations to Jorge Pereira of Redniss & Mead, Sponsor of NSPS National Trig-Star 3rd Place Award Recipient
For the past seven school years, about once a month, Jorge Pereira, PLS of Redniss & Mead, spends part of his workday at Fairfield College Preparatory School overseeing their Trig*Star Club. The Trig*Star Club was formed so the students could participate in the Trig-Star Program Contest which is an annual high school mathematics competition sponsored by the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) based on the practical application of Trigonometry. The program recognizes the best students from high schools throughout the nation. (Source: NSPS.com)
Jorge enjoys working with the students in the Trig*Star Club because he feels that it is a great way of carrying on the land surveying profession by showing the students it’s practical applications in their daily studies and the importance in their everyday lives. And it seems to be working; The club has been very successful in the contest – as State Champions every year since 2012 and this year, a national award, placing 3rd was Haoxiang Zhang, who graduated this year from Fairfield College Preparatory School in Fairfield, Connecticut.
