The scholarship was created to assist students who have declared a major in mathematics at a college or university that is an institutional member of the American Mathematical Society (AMS).

Each year AMS selects a number of geographically distributed schools that make one-time awards to beginning mathematical students to assist them in pursuit of careers in mathematics. The amount of each scholarship is $3,000.

Reese was born and raised in Lawton, Oklahoma. She attended Eisenhower Senior High School where she maintained a 4.0 GPA and graduated with honors in 2012. Reese’s career goal is to become the Superintendent of a school district in order to impact the lives and education of the upcoming generations of students.
